Ministry to Purchase Cheaper Cars for JCF

National Security Minister, Hon. Robert Montague, says will be purchasing cheaper vehicles during the next financial year to boost the mobile capacity of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).

Speaking at a town hall meeting in Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland, on March 21, the Minister said motor cars, which are popularly known as ‘deportees’, will be purchased, instead of more expensive new vehicles.

He pointed out that these cars should be able to serve the force for at least three years, and instead of purchasing 100 new vehicles, the Ministry could obtain 400 used cars for the same price.
