As it celebrates its 151st anniversary, the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) staged a career and youth expo, Wednesday, November 28, to raise awareness of the various attractive job positions available in the Force.
The expo was held on the grounds of the Mico University College in Kingston, as one of the events to celebrate Police Week.
The event was divided into an exhibition of products and services at various booths and a symposium which served as a question and answer session to engage students.
The event opened with electrifying beats being pumped by the JCF’s very own sound system called the Community Safety and Security (CSS) High Power. The sound system pumped beats from Jamaican cultural icons including Bob Marley.
The career exposition saw a total of 12 booths in operation, each from the various arms within the Constabulary Force namely; The Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch (PSTEB); The Major Organized Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA); The Counter Terrorism and Organized Crime Investigation Branch (CTOC); The Community Safety and Security Branch (CSSB); The Corporate Communications Unit (CCU); The Visual Identification Unit (VIC); The planning Research and Development Branch (PRDB); The National Police College of Jamaica (NPCJ); The Mobile Reserve; The Canine Division; The Marine Division; The Narcotics Division; The Telecom Division, and The Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISCO).
Schools that were represented included Norman Manley High School, Wolmers Girl, Vauxhall High School, Donald Quarrie High among others.
The main aim of this event was to engage millennials about the numerous jobs that exist within the Force and to broaden the view about careers in the JCF.
