Former Saint Lucia Director of Corrections Verne Garde has taken up duties again at the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF), reliable sources say.

Garde has been reappointed as Director of Corrections after serving in that capacity from February 27, 2015, to March 31, 2018, and later as Superintendent of Her Majesty’s Prison in the British Virgin Islands.

According to sources, he officially took up duties in Saint Lucia on Friday.

Garde succeeded the last Director of Corrections, Hilary Herman, who ended his three-year contract on September 30, 2022.

The 49-year-old former police officer takes up duties at a time when the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) administration is implementing recommendations of a BCF review report.

Just recently, Home Affairs Minister Dr. Virginia Albert Poyotte declared that BCF staff were seeing ‘incremental changes’ at the institution.

“The government has tackled a number of areas, so we are well on our way to re-organising and restructuring that institution,” the Minister declared.

Verne Garde is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice Correctional Administration from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York.

He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice.

He  also has training in areas including Leadership Development, Hemispheric Security and Intelligence Forum, Supervisory Management, Professional Development in Management, Leadership, gang investigations and New Initiatives in Community Policing.

  1. So why are they not appointing Mr. Terrence as Director of BCF, knowing he has been there long enough…..

  2. yes but does he have more work experience than mr Garde has?. In my opinion someone who has working experience is way better than someone who went to school and has a degree cause most times the people with all the education they do the most crap and are the lazy ones that only want to sit in ac office and give orders but if someone has both the degree and the work experience they are worth their salt and you would find those with the work experience work way harder than those that just have the degree and no experience. a degree is just to say you are qualified in the field

  3. Anytime slp in power they pull garde n uwp pulls in herman. Political cycle. If uwp comes back garde will be out again. I don’t like this guy tbh but the politics is bullshit

  4. Recycling old heads. Is there no one else except Garde and Herman. For the past 20 years it is like they are taking turns. Geez.

  5. well maybe their work speaks for itself. If you are good at what you do it shows and you dont have to boast. was there no one else apart from Levern Spencer to get sportswoman of the year for every single year? when you put in the work and dedication the results speaks for itself

  6. Let me tell you why, because he never did anything whilst he was there, he had the opportunity but did not care.

  7. you serious? you mean want they want him so from time they see him their just dropping their pants lmao

  8. It is not my business who he sleeps with. As long as he does the necessary job that Borderlais critically requires, then I am fine.

  9. Well the way Borderlais has been throughout the years I fail to realize what these 2 men have done except collect a salary…In SLU there’s no Out with the Old in with the new…it’s always Out with the old & in with the Older.

  10. No UWP didn’t push Garde out, he left to take on a more lucrative offer in the BVI. Maybe he is back because SLP gave him a more lucrative offer than he was getting in the BVI.
