“Integrity is the hallmark of Justices of the Peace”, Custos Rotolurum Steadman Fuller said at the commissioning of 31 justices of the peace last week.
The custos challenged the 31 to execute their duties fairly and fearlessly.
“This is the time when more is required of us; when we execute our duties consistent with the oath of office that you have taken here today, you do so knowing that the work you do supports the law enforcement entities in Jamaica,” Fuller said.
In recent times there have been several calls from the Minister of Justice Delroy Chuck, highlighting the critical role that justices of peace play in administering justice and maintaining familial stability and that more justices of the peace need to be commissioned.
Justices of the Peace of Jamaica, Kingston Association answered the call of Minister Chuck to train more people to serve by commissioning 31 public servants, businessmen and women to the service.
