The Government of Saint Lucia has provided the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) with two more vehicles to aid in its fight against crime and has said that it will continue providing more resources to the police to assist with citizen security.
Prime Minister Philip J Pierre indicated this much at a handing over ceremony on Monday.
Speaking on the current crime situation, Pierre noted that government is doing whatever it can do to curb crime.
Pierre also urged members of the high command to weed out members who are not doing a proper job.
According to him, “there is a scourge of crime which we have to deal with; we’re concerned because it affects all of us. The government is doing whatever we can do to solve this situation. We are working with the members of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (and) they’ve got the full support of the government, but they have to be accountable, and they have to have the courage and the discipline to weed out members among them who are not doing a proper job.”
