Jamaica Gleaner / District Constables are one step closer to joining the ranks of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).
The House of Representatives yesterday passed the Civil Service Establishment (General Order) 2017 which will result in 2,200 district constable posts going onto the government establishment.
The district constables will now fall under the JCF.
In moving the resolution, Minister of the Public Service, Audley Shaw, said this will regularise the status of district constables in the JCF.
