Jones copped the award on December 24, when the Department held its award ceremony.

Awards for outstanding performances at the Traffic Department during the past year were also awarded to constables PC 510 Korah Jacobs, PC189 Kerian Caesar, and PC 731 Eugene Henry. The award for Best at Accident Investigation was presented to PC561 Kishon Leslie, while the Most Improved award went to PC364 Rawlson George. Elsa Hunt was adjudged Most Outstanding Traffic Warden.

The ceremony was attended by acting Commissioner of Police Michael Charles, acting Deputy Commissioner of Police Brinsley Ballantyne, and Assistant Commissioner of Police Frankie Joseph.

Superintendent Kenneth John, Head of the Traffic Department, said there is a young staff at the Department and the awards serve as an incentive to motivate them to work towards their goals, as well as the organization’s.

“Since the award ceremony, members of the Traffic Department have come and asked how they can improve themselves. We have identified areas for them to achieve this,” said John.

John said he is anticipating that 2013 will be a very productive year for his Department.

“We will be working towards delivering a better customer service for the public. We will pursue a number of initiatives to continue to keep the roads safe. Everything we do here is to work towards our main objective, which is safety,” said John.

John said his Department is currently assessing areas in the Arnos Vale/Villa vicinity where there were increased accidents.

“We will be doing more patrols and putting additional road signs in place to address the situation,” said John.

Overall, Superintendent John said during the last three years, the Traffic Department has seen a vast reduction in motor vehicle accidents, by approximately 30-40 per cent.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, December 27, 2012 John was promoted to the rank of Superintendent of Police. Besides the Traffic Department, he also heads the Fire Brigade, Police Garage, and Transport Unit.(Police Public Relations)
