Superintendent Burton Deterville was a formidable leader who is fondly recalled as a humble servant, who effortlessly achieved any task set out before him. He led as he wanted to be led; with grace and compassion, which was unmatched.

Never one to utilize his rank to ensure compliance, his men would blindly follow his lead, without question.

The organization today mourns the loss of a stalwart, who was undeniably a force to be reckoned with. Words may never express the impact his presence made on the men and women he so diligently served with.

To all affected persons, the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force extends our deepest sympathies. The loss you feel is shared by our organization and country. May his legacy bring comfort to all in this truly challenging time.
