    NATIONAL SECURITY Minister Peter Bunting has confirmed that the Government has special plans for Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Justin Felice after his contract expires later this year.

    Bunting also disclosed that other police personnel from the United Kingdom (UK) would soon be arriving in Jamaica to boost the expertise of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).

    “We are in the process of looking for someone at a senior superintendent level from the UK to head our Crime Scene Investigation unit,” Bunting said.

    Sources say ACP Felice will be reassigned to the Financial Investigations Division of the Ministry of Finance after he completes his contract with the JCF. However, Bunting was coy in response to queries about the plans for Felice.


    “ACP Felice’s contract comes to an end in September this year and discussions are under way for a reassignment of his current position, which is head of the Anti-Corruption Branch, of about five years,” said Bunting.

    He added: “I am not in a position to confirm what that new position will be, but I believe it is the intention of the Government that he will move on from the leadership of the Anti-Corruption Branch to another assignment.”

    Bunting said he was misinterpreted when news reports suggested that the use of expatriate police in Jamaica had come to an end.

    He said he was responding to a question in reference to the end of ACP Les Green’s tenure. “I said I believe that after eight years, if he hadn’t transferred the skills and the best practices, then he would have failed in his objectives.”
