JCF hosts back-to-school clinic

KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Jamaica Constabulary Force’s (JCF) Chaplaincy Services Branch says it will be hosting a back-to-school motivational clinic to assist students.

The clinic, held under the theme “Upliftment through Character Building” is geared towards children aged 10 – 17 and is planned for next week Thursday, August 24, starting at 9:00am at the Hope Botanical Gardens, a release from the JCF Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) said.

“Parents will be able to leave their children for the day knowing that we will take care of them and provide them with the mental, spiritual and physical support they will need to take on the challenges of the new school term,” said Reverend Courtney Faulknor of the JCF Chaplaincy Services.

“We understand the nature and scope of the work of the police, and recognise the importance of providing the additional support they require to tend to the needs of our youth and serve, protect and reassure all citizens,” he added.

Parents who are interested in having their children attend are asked to register them by 12:00pm tomorrow, Friday, August 18.

Registration forms are available at the offices of the Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Branch, the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency, the National Intelligence Bureau, the Technical Services Branch, the Office of the Commissioner of Police, the National Police College of Jamaica and other police departments.
