HADDINGTON, Hanover — The Haddington Community Development Committee (HCDC) in collaboration with the Hanover Parish Development Committee (HPDC) on Sunday awarded 21 persons, including 11 members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, for their outstanding contribution to the development of the community.

The individuals, who were presented with certificates, were recognised in the areas of policing, sports and "general community contribution."

At the well -attended ceremony vice -president of the Hanover Parish Development Committee, Courtney Hudson lauded the Hanover Police Department led by Deputy Superintendent Artwell Collie, for reducing the number of crimes committed in the small deep rural community.

"The function was to recognise individuals including the police who have made significant contribution to the community of Haddington over the last year or so. We have recognised people from the police including Superintendent Collie and others for their contribution in the community to bring down the level of crime in the community," explained Hudson, adding that "the community was recently plagued with some shootings."

The awards ceremony which was held for the first time was conceived by Dewayne Thomas, the vice- chairman of the HCDC, who noted that the committee plans to make the awards ceremony an annual event.
