Jamaica enforces war on drugs as officer nabbed in narcotics sting

A member of the Jamaica Constabulary Force's Marine Division, Constable George Junior Powell, was detained with two unidentified men, presumed to be Haitian, during a drug operation by the force's Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime Branch.

The operation intercepted a vehicle and found fourteen bags of cannabis, estimated to be over 500 pounds. The JCF emphasized their commitment to law enforcement and integrity, stating that no one is exempt from the law, and actions will be taken against any member who breaches conduct standards.

The force maintains that an officer's worth is measured by their legality and conduct, not their uniform.

“No one is above the law, and we will pursue criminals wherever they are found, even within our own ranks. There is no room in the Jamaica Constabulary Force for individuals with criminal intent who display a willingness to compromise the privileged position they occupy as members of our organisation,” the release on June 21 read.

“We hold our members to the highest standards of conduct and integrity, and any breach of these standards will be met with decisive action to preserve the honour and trust bestowed upon the JCF by the public. As such, we make no apology for our rigorous internal investigations and hold no embarrassment in our efforts to root out criminal behaviour,” the statement added.
