Pastor Gary Buddoo-Fletcher
MANCHESTER, Jamaica – The Jamaica Constabulary Force yesterday welcomed a new chief chaplain at an affirmation service on the grounds of the Northern Caribbean University in Mandeville, Manchester.
He is Pastor Gary Buddoo-Fletcher, Assistant Commissioner of Police.
The new chaplain takes over from Bishop Gary Welsh, who now heads the Community Safety and Security Branch.
According to a release from the police’s Corporate Communication Unit (CCU), Buddoo-Fletcher enrolled as a volunteer Chaplain in 2012 and thereafter became a certified member of the JCF. In 2014 he was asked to fill the position of Acting Assistant Chaplain for the Area One Division. His outstanding work and dedication to the force led to him being appointed chief force chaplain, the release added.
The chief chaplain will now take up his post and serve the Force along with the eight other Force Chaplains under his command. “I am honored to serve God, my community and the JCF in this capacity. I will do my best to give ethical, moral and spiritual support to the men and women of the JCF and their families and who serve, protect and reassure citizens of our country,’’ said the ACP.
