FIFA Member Association Service Director Theodore Giannikos is satisfied with the progress made at the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) Technical Centre, after yesterday assessing the construction of a 24-room dormitory building at the University of the West Indies (UWI) – based facility. The first phase of the project was completed at a cost of US$480,000 ($61 million) and the second and final phase is expected to start this month end, costing US$620,000 (J$78.7 million). It is projected to be finished in six months. “I am impressed. I think it is a good step towards the development of football in the country,” Giannikos told The Gleaner. “This is creative work, very important help to football. The federation will have a very good base to build from (when the building is completed) to help young footballers develop,” he also added. JFF’s general secretary Raymond Grant says the second phase of the project was sent to FIFA for approval. “The second phase is before FIFA for approval by March 28. If approved a contract should be signed between FIFA and YP Seaton (local contractors for the project),” Grant said. “The good thing is that FIFA is satisfied with the plan, so work is expected to start later this month,” the general secretary said. According to JFF president Captain Horace Burrell it is long time coming but worth the wait. “I’m extremely happy that phase one of the project is completed. The project has taken a long time but the vision is for the future. It will benefit generations to come. A lot has gone into the project. It is about the development of our football. Christopher Shaw, project consultant explained that the three storey building will consist of 24 fully furnished double occupancy rooms, a lobby, manager’s office, patio, canteen, technical area, library, cold storage and meeting area. The property is on lands leased to the JFF by the UWI for 49 years.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore police department committed to a sweeping overhaul of its practices Thursday under a court-enforceable agreement with the federal government.The Justice Department agreement, which was approved by the city government and will now be submitted to a judge, mandates changes in the most fundamental aspects of police work. The agreement, known as a consent decree, is the culmination of months of negotiations with the federal government and is meant to correct constitutional violations identified in a scathing report released last year.The filing of the agreement, in the waning days of Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s tenure, is meant as a capstone for an administration that has made civil rights enforcement a key priority and that has pursued similar consent decrees with other large American police forces.The agreement is intended to remain in place long after Lynch leaves office, though civil liberties advocates are concerned that Sen. Jeff Sessions, the Alabama Republican who’s been nominated to replace her, may not look to enforce consent decrees with the same vigor.The Baltimore city government signed off on the agreement Thursday. A hearing will allow for public comment on the agreement before it’s approved by a federal judge.The Justice Department began investigating the Baltimore force following the April 2015 death of a young black man who was fatally injured while in the custody of officers. Its report last August found that officers were routinely stopping large numbers of people in poor, black neighborhoods for dubious reasons, and unlawfully arresting residents merely for speaking out in ways police deemed disrespectful.The consent decree is meant as a remedy for some of those same problems. It discourages the arrests of citizens for quality of life offenses, requiring a supervisor to sign off on any request to take someone into custody for a minor infraction. It also mandates basic training for making stops and searches and for transporting a suspect.
