The Jamaica Ex-Police Association of South Florida, Inc. is a not for profit corporation that is licensed by the State of Florida. Their fundraising efforts are aimed at assisting students in our South Florida Community and in Jamaica with opportunities to attain educational scholarship funds. In addition, they are working on a Police Station Renovation Project in Jamaica.
While they have been staging their annual ball for the past 24 years as their association’s main fundraiser, they also take this time to honor a person from the South Florida community who has made significant contributions to the citizens of the community. The person honored is selected by a committee while the general membership of the association votes on the final selection. This year, the City of Lauderhill’s Commissioner Howard Berger was selected.
