Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has underscored his commitment to public safety amid a recent spike in deadly gun violence while expressing appreciation for the work of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF).
Last week, Pierre, also responsible for National Security, officially handed over bicycles and new vehicles to the police.
He wrote on Facebook that the gift would enable officers to serve and protect citizens better.
“The continued support for the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force is a testament to my commitment to public safety,” the Castries East MP explained.
In addition, he noted that the gift was a reminder of the importance of supporting the police and providing them with the resources they need to do their job.
“We look forward to seeing the new vehicles in action and the positive impact they will have on our communities,” Pierre said.
