The Commission is funded by the Government of Jamaica from the consolidated fund. Since inception it has also received support by way of sponsorship from international partners: the Department for International Development (DFID), the United States International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL), European Union (EU) and Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). DFID and EU provide annual funding used to offset expenses of the Commission to include payments of salaries and internationally recognized training programmes. For 2017, the contributions of our international sponsors were directly linked to the successful execution of the Commission’s hosting of the Caribbean Use of Force in Law Enforcement Conference in May.

As the Commission continues to see a decline in funding from the Government of Jamaica each year, amid requests for additional investigative staff, we are grateful for the assistance that these international partnerships have afforded us which ensure that we continue to execute our duties effectively.

INDECOM’s donor funding represented 39% of the annual budget for 2016/2017, while it represented 36% of the 2017/2018 budget.
