Former cops give back
The Association of Past Members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force Benevolent Society (Chapter One) recently made a cash presentation to the force's Convalescence Home in Black River, St Elizabeth.
The group presented $100,000 to the home on November 29.
In a letter to the director of the home, over the signatures of Paul Stevens, secretary, and John Morris, second vice-president, the group said its contribution is from a fundraiser held in May.
"The Convalescence Home is always in our thoughts, and we are indeed happy to be able to make this contribution. We hope it will be of some help in the day-to-day running of this accommodating and caring institution, and we pledge to continue our support," the letter said.
The JCF's Convalescence Home caters to police officers who got injured in the line of duty. Eleven persons reside in the home.
