Security Minister, Robert Montague, is again dismissing calls for the new Commissioner of Police to be selected from outside the ranks of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, JCF.

Mr. Montague says he’s confident that the next Commissioner of Police can be found from within.

The Police Services Commission is now accepting applications for the post of Commissioner of Police.

The post became vacant after Dr. Carl Williams proceeded on early retirement on January 6.

And, Mr. Montague is outlining several measures to be implemented this year within the JCF.
