Jamaican GOJ: $353.35 Million To INDECOM 2018/ Police Have No Cars, No Computers, Ramshackle Stations…

 

AT SOME POINT IN TIME WE HAVE TO FACE THE FACTS, INDECOM IS NOT AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATIVE AGENCY, IT IS A GOVERNMENT AND FOREIGN-FUNDED ENEMY OF THE SECURITY FORCES…

 

 

Hamish Campbell and Terrence Williams

If (INDECOM) is not adhering to what was it’s stated mandated, then we must acknowledge that it is a rogue agency which is a black hole for tax-payers money.
Under Terrence Williams and Hamish, Campbell INDECOM has morphed into a  dangerous tool which encourages and brews dissent on the Island and emboldens Jamaica’s heavily armed criminal gangs.

The Government has a responsibility, in fact, its first duty is the security of the Jamaican people, that includes the Police. It is incumbent on the Government to either rein in Terrence Williams and Hamish Campbell or better yet disband this rogue agency which has become an enemy of the people.

This is the same old dilapidated office the commissioner of police, the Island’s top law enforcement calls his office.

According to INDECOM’s website: The Commission is funded by the Government of Jamaica from the consolidated fund. Since inception it has also received support by way of sponsorship from international partners: the Department for International Development (DFID), the United States International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL), European Union (EU) and Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).

 

Even as INDECOM complains about dwindling funding coming from the Government, it’s own reporting indicates that the Jamaican Government continues to waste tremendous amounts of money on funding the Commission while the police do not have cars to answer citizens distress calls, Officers are forced to occupy filthy rat and roach infested ramshackle structures, which pass for police stations.

This is the INDECOM building in New Kingston Jamaica….

Additionally, police stations have no computers, officers have no uniform or boots, and police officers cannot pay their bills. Even ass the IMF continue to heighten its calls for the Government to trim its public sector wage bill and teachers are on strike the government waste hundreds of millions of dollars each year on an agency which produces nothing tangible for the Jamaican people.

inside INDECOM’S New Kingston digs…

The following figures represent the monies doled out to INDECOM by the Government and shadow overseas donors each year in an effort to antagonize, harass and demagogue the nation’s security forces.

2016/2017

GOJ: $366.492 million

Other: Donors $230.616 million

2017/2018

GOJ: $353.35 million

Other: $202.476 million

I ask Jamaicans to consider if these hundreds of millions of dollars are well spent on feeding the ego of Terrence Williams Hamish Campbell and others while 1616 of our countrymen and women were slaughtered last year and hundreds already dead so far this year?
Jamaicans must demand answers from the Government, who gives money to INDECOM and why? What are their motives for giving these enormous sums of money to a commission which really does no law enforcement but lie in wait to persecute members of the security forces?
HERE ARE A FEW OF WHAT PASSES FOR POLICE STATIONS ….
