Madam Commissioner, when will you put police at the Anse La Raye police station to conduct an operation similar to this one? To those of us residing at Roseau, Jacmel, and Bois Inde the Anse La Raye Police station is useless. It appears the police are afraid of the Jacmel and Bois Inde criminals. We want police, not PO.
Great job officers! Thank you all for showing up even when it might be an overwhelming situation.
……. As a St Lucian , first time in history I seeing and reading this…. Tickets ….It’s about time!…smph…..”cars were impounded due to fraudulent registration plates, being operated with expired registration and insurance certificates, and being operated by an individual without a valid driver’s license licences”…..
