KINGSTON, Jamaica — A Jamaica-born woman was recently appointed to the State of Pennsylvania’s Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) by Governor Tom Wolf.

Michelle Tulloch-Neil, a graduate of Holy Child Hood High School, earned a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Temple University and a Master’s of Theological Studies from Palmer Theological Seminary.

News Americas Now reported that she is currently the senior victim/witness advocate in the Juvenile Court Unit of the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office.  

The Commission, chaired by Josh Shapiro, initiates, validates and financially supports justice related programs in Pennsylvania’s justice system. PCCD’s efforts help to protect and support crime victims, enhance law enforcement and to empower communities through collaboration.


The Commission also works on advocating for safe schools, provides technological and information-sharing tools and launches evidence-based innovative programs.

In 2011, Neil received “The 2011 Excellence in Victim Services Award” from the Honorable R Seth Williams, District Attorney of Philadelphia. In 2013, she received the “2013 Volunteer Award” from Team Jamaica-Bickle-Philadelphia and serves as treasurer of Team Jamaica Bickle-Philadelphia.
