St. Andrew: The recent addition of 107 new retrofitted vehicles to the mobile fleet of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) was "timely and necessary in meeting the growing demand" for police services across the island (especially during the current pandemic), says Police Commissioner Major-General Antony Anderson. "We have been able to be more responsive to the needs of the public," the Commissioner says, "and this has supported us in taking on new tasks and roles associated with COVID-19."
St. Catherine: Entering an unprecedented deal with the education ministry, ReadyNet, the sister company of ReadyTV, will be providing WiFi services (by the end of June) to 100 rural schools and communities presently without internet connectivity. " We are very pleased that our first customers in Jamaica under our recently granted license will be schoolchildren, especially those in rural and remote areas who have generally been left behind," says Chris Dehring, co-CEO of Ready Communications. "This can be the beginning of a new and exciting time for Jamaica as we strive towards a fully digital society."
