Commissioner of Police, Owen Ellington, has announced the appointment of Angela Patterson as Director of Corporate and Special Services effective September 1.
Mrs. Patterson will assume responsibility for all Finance, Human Resources, Information and Communication Technologies, as well as Procurement functions within the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).
