The Jamaica Customs Agency (JCA) is appealing to its customers and stakeholders to participate in the Public Sector Customer Service Competition by voting for the best public sector entity and customer service officer.

Persons can vote by filling out the nomination forms and placing them in boxes at the entity or online via a voting link on the agency’s website www.jacustoms.gov.jm. Persons can also vote via email customerservice@cabinet.gov.jm or by using the toll-free line 1-888-991-2752 or voting online at www.cabinet.gov.jm.

Winners of the competition, spearheaded by the Public Sector Transformation and Modernisation Division, will be decided by public vote and a panel of judges.

Speaking at a Jamaica Information Service (JIS) Think Tank held on Tuesday (January 20), Acting Director of Public Relations, JCA, Natalee Cameron, said that “voting is slow” but steady at the entity.

“It is slow but we still visit the ports and encourage persons to vote. When persons visit the ports or the airport, they tend to want to get their goods and leave….it is not that they don’t want to participate but sometimes time is against them,” she said.

Miss Cameron said the agency will also be encouraging persons to vote at the upcoming biannual Information Exposition and Appreciation Day scheduled to take place on Thursday (January 29) at the Customs Courtyard, Newport East, in Kingston.

The exposition, which begins at 10:00 a.m., is part of activities to celebrate Customs Week 2015 being observed from January 25 to 30 under the theme: ‘Coordinated Border Management – An Inclusive Approach for Connecting Stakeholders’.
