Police Warn Of Arrest, Prosecution Of Delinquent Students


The Community Relations Branch of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) has warned in a document to school principals through the District Education office that delinquent students face arrest and prosecution.

St Lucia Times has verified that the document, which also appeared on social media, is authentic.

It referred to a meeting on Monday that discussed the situation of children after school in Castries.

The authorities are known to be concerned about groups of unruly students converging in the capital after school and creating disturbances.

According to the RSLPF document, the police central division has decided that schoolchildren found fighting, loitering, armed with illegal weapons, or possessing illicit substances will be arrested and prosecuted as of February 2023.

“Incidents of school fights and bad conduct continue to create an atmosphere of disorder and lawlessness which cannot continue,” the police noted.

St Lucia Times understands that stakeholders were discussing the matter at a meeting on Tuesday.
