The 27 were recognised for their contribution to the parish in the areas of community service, public service, agriculture, health, education, sports, and entrepreneurship.

Superintendent Beeput, a 20-year veteran in the Jamaica Constabulary Force, was awarded in the area of public service.

In a citation read at the ceremony, the senior policewoman was described as “one who gives a listening ear to her colleagues, the public and prisoners alike”.

She has also been accredited for lifting the morale and efficiency of members of the Hanover Police Division.
