The Richmond police station in St. Mary will be renovated this weekend when some 26 members of the Jamaica Ex-Police Association, Florida chapter will undertake the project.
Supplies and equipment totaling $3,000 have been donated for the project by the association members, to assist in the refurbishing work.
This year, members of the Florida chapter will partner with the members of the local Jamaican chapter to assist in the general renovation which will include painting of the building, plumbing, masonry and carpentry, and installation of new equipment at the station.
This is the fourth annual effort organized by the Jamaica Ex-Police members to do general restoration and renovation of police stations across the island. Since the inception of the program, the members of the Jamaica Ex-Police have completed clean-up work at other stations including Four Paths, Clarendon, Lucea, in Hanover, and Ocho Rios in St. Ann.
During their stay, the members will also assist in refurbishing and renovation at the Black River Convalescent Home residence for sick policemen.
The Association members will present the annual scholarship to a student in the St. Mary community at a presentation ceremony, next Monday (May 28), following the conclusion of the annual refurbishing project.
Applications for the Jamaican scholarship were handled by the Community Affairs Division of the Jamaica Constabulary Force.
Meanwhile, the Association will hold its annual fund-raising and scholarship awards banquet on Saturday (June 16) at the Hilton Airport Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. Guest speaker will be the Commissioner of Police, Jamaica, Mr. Lucius Thomas.
The Jamaica Ex Police Association in South Florida was started nearly 16 years ago and now has an enrollment of nearly 130 members, former officers of the Jamaica Constabulary Force. Other chapters are established in New York and Connecticut.
