Government To Buy Used Cars For Police

Security Minister Robert Montague says the gov­ern­ment will be import­ing used cars to boost the mobile capac­i­ty of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).


Speaking at a town hall meet­ing in Westmoreland yes­ter­day, Montague said the mon­ey to buy the used motor cars, pop­u­lar­ly known as ‘depor­tees’ will be allo­cat­ed in the next bud­get. Montague also said the used cars will be pur­chased in an effort to cap­i­talise on the lim­it­ed finan­cial resources avail­able to pur­chase vehi­cles for the force. He said instead of pur­chas­ing 100 new vehi­cles, the min­istry will be able to buy 400 used cars for the same price. Montague also said the used vehi­cles should be able to serve the force for at least three years. http://​jamaica​glean​er​.com/​a​r​t​i​c​l​e​/​n​e​w​s​/​2​0​1​6​0​3​2​2​/​g​o​v​e​r​n​m​e​n​t​-​b​u​y​-​u​s​e​d​-​c​a​r​s​-​p​o​l​ice
