Recognizing the need to assist the police in taking statements more effectively and in a timely manner, the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF) donated more than $200,000 worth of computer equipment late December, last year.

A flat screen computer monitor, keyboard, mouse and a printer with photocopier, fax and scanner capabilities were among the items donated to the New Kingston Police Post.

Speaking with JIS News, Manager of Administration and Company Secretary of the TEF, Terriann Oldham, said her agency felt it necessary to provide the equipment after an employee experienced difficulty with getting a statement taken.

“They do serve and protect the employees as well as the tourists along Knutsford Boulevard and in New Kingston. We felt we needed to assist them as best we could,” she said.

Ms. Oldham is also encouraging  other corporate entities to assist the police, who risk their lives to serve and protect the citizens of the country.

Meanwhile, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) in charge of the New Kingston Police Post, Christopher Murdock, expressed appreciation for the donation.

“It will help the station in terms of the preparation of statements. We no longer have to write the statement. We’ll simply type, record and save it to our systems. This will go a far way,” he said.

Like Ms. Oldham, DSP Murdock is also encouraging other corporate entities to help the police. “A collective effort of all persons will make matters better for the police,” he said.
