Senior RM welcomes new JCF recruits
Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey, presiding in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate Court, has welcomed six new police recruits, following a number of court proceedings.
The six, who were smartly attired in blue formal jackets and trousers, stood proudly as they were being addressed.
In welcoming the new police officers to the entry-level ranks of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, Pusey had sobering messages to offer.
"In every job, there is pleasant and unpleasant," she began. "Try at all times to be respectful to the people.
"I am of the firm belief that people don't commit crimes just so," she said. "There is always an underlying reason. If you approach things in that way, then you will get better results."
Pusey further explained in her impromptu welcome speech that they ought never to find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
"There is always a right side of the law. Never you end up on the left side," she added.
In concluding, the presiding magistrate said: "The police force has afforded you awesome opportunities to advance yourself. All the best!"
