Outstanding academic performances allowed Teal Leacock and Shante’ Thompson to be awarded the Motorola Solutions Foundation/Association of Caribbean Commissioners of Police (ACCP) Scholarship prize of $5,000 dollars each once again this year.
Acting Commissioner of Police Mr. Erwin Boyce at the Police Headquarters, Roebuck Street, St. Michael, recently presented the Scholarship prize of $5,000 dollars to Teal Leacock who is studying in Canada and Shante’ Thompson who is studying in England.
Acting Commissioner Boyce said the two young ladies were selected from a pool of applicants from the region and they satisfied all of the reviewers’ criteria. He was elated that members of the Force have excellent and intelligent young persons who tend to cop the scholarships.
