WATCH: Police Powers Act Achieves ‘Desired Effect’ In Vieux Fort South


The Police Powers Act has achieved the desired effect in Vieux-Fort South since it was passed in Parliament less than three weeks ago.

A stepped up presence by law enforcement officers from the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force and the Regional Security System has returned normalcy to Vieux-Fort South.

  1. Thats why PJP is the best PM ever and Kenny is the best thing that ever happened to Vieux Fort. PJP has brought peace to Vfort. Vfort is now the number one Town and a place for everyone to be. Hope he remains our PM for the next 3 terms.

  2. Pjp should just run v fort . Kenny go retire please or give lectures somewhere . You mr anthony failed as a leader and a rep .

  3. Opposition and Mary Francis say what now??…….

    Oh Yeah!! they were prescribed moo-moo tablets…..

    Good to see they’re taking their meds…..

  4. I applaud the current state of things in VF, but this is only a temporary fix. The govt can’t sustain this level of surveillance for an extended period of time. The fundamental issues prompting the violence and criminal activity remains. However, I hope the folks in VF use peaceful means to resolve their issues and turn in the illegal guns.

  5. Really good to see things getting better in my beloved south and big up to the police for the efforts . I urge the police to start developing a plan for when RSS leave SLU. The criminals are no longer in town ,they are now in the country side. Banse, Augier, La-Grace, Saltibus, Desrissueax, Chouisel , Belle Vue and them places. Conduct some recon in these areas and you will find them.

  6. It is wayyyyyy too early to pronounce that a very recently passed bill is having the “desired effect”. There are too many variables in this equation, including the presence of the RSS and heightened police presence in VF, to suggest that the lull (which we can assume is temporary) is because of the passage of the bill. This is irresponsible, unscientific, without basis, and deceitful, ignorant or both. This is akin to saying mission accomplished in the middle of the battle. Ask George H. Bush about those kinds of pronouncements.
