THE EDITOR: Shameless is about the only way we the police officers can describe the behaviour of a non-Saint Lucian leading a very saint Lucian organization.
How can we accept the ideology of an individual with no significant environmental qualifications occupying the forefront of an organization like the National Trust and be permitted to deny the most significant national organization of a home for our officers?
The other St. Lucians involved in this political masquerading should sit back and consider and the rationale, as their approach flies in the face of responsibility and respect to the sons and daughters of St. Lucia who have placed themselves at the forefront of our security in these trying days of heightening criminal activity, more so when the National Trust does not have the legal standing to undertake such a course of action.
We are also disturbed by the comments of the former leader of the SLP that the Police Headquarters and Criminal Court should not be constructed on the site of a former prison compound despite the unacceptable conditions under which police officers have to perform their duties.
We are all St. Lucians and should not politicize what is respectfully due to the police force. (Former Police Sergeant)
