President's Message


Dear Family, Friends, and Supporters:

Welcome to the Jamaican American Law Enforcement Organization (JAmLEO).  JAmLEO was founded to support the Jamaican members of service within the NYPD as well as descendants of Jamaica and the Jamaican Diaspora.  We celebrate the achievements and contributions of our Jamaican American law enforcement officers, community members and embrace the unity of our vibrant cultures.


JAmLEO holds a deep commitment to recognizing remarkable individuals who have dedicated themselves to serving and protecting our communities.  We are proud to shine a spotlight on the NYPD’s Jamaican American law enforcement professionals whose strength, resilience and tireless efforts safeguard our neighborhoods and create safer environments for all.


Jamaica's rich heritage is woven into the fabric of our community, infusing our traditions, music, and cuisine with a sense of vibrancy and warmth that is truly unique.  JAmLEO showcases the beauty and diversity of Jamaican culture, bringing us closer together and fostering understanding and harmony among our communities. 


Some of JAmLEO’s focuses include, but are not limited to, community partnerships, youth education, professional development and the positive contributions made to Jamaica and the diaspora.  There is a special interest in the education of the youth in our local community and abroad.  Our youth are the next generation of leaders who will continue to carry our legacy forward with pride and honor.


A heartfelt thank you to our members, family, friends and sponsors for your generous assistance and support.  Your investment in JAmLEO enables us to continue our mission of recognizing and celebrating the achievements of Jamaican American law enforcement officers and members of our community.


Let us remember Jamaica’s motto, “Out of Many One People.”  One Love.




Kerine Bunsie
Interim President of JAmLEO
