On a visit to Saint Lucia, regional security chiefs noted that increased gun violence was impacting their countries and highlighted the need for stronger ties in response.

The visitors noted that stronger ties would ensure law and order and public protection.

“We are all experiencing the rise of gun violence in our countries. We can really sympathise with our brothers and our sisters,” Deputy Commissioner Frankie Joseph of the Royal Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force said.

And Joseph told Regional Security System (RSS) officers deployed to Saint Lucia to assist with maintaining law and order that they were performing a ‘risky’ task and expressed appreciation for their service.

“Our lives are at risk,” he explained, while urging the officers to safeguard their lives and the lives of their ‘buddies.’

While in Saint Lucia, the Security Chiefs from the Royal Police Force of Antigua & Barbuda, the Antigua & Barbuda Defence Force, the Barbados Police Service, the Barbados Defence Force, and the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force met with Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre, responsible for National Security, Police Commissioner Crusita Descartes-Pelius, and the RSLPF Executive for a briefing session.

They also visited officers deployed to Saint Lucia to assist with maintaining law and order.

  1. you are so right about that be very careful with those you are working with. corruption highest

  2. The Magestrates and Judges at the Courts have to be Blamed .The police Doing their Best to Arrest and Charge the Criminals but the Courts setting Bail Conditions that makes no Sense . That’s the problem in St.Lucia

  3. All I read in that article was blah, blah, blah….no real solutions. Just a statement about teamwork in an attempt to make people believe that something is being done.

  4. They can’t even handle what’s in their own country any ways let’s drink and be merry smh.

  5. How come no comment from Barbados law enforcement in photo with the the khaki and redband caps. Barbados is the biggest in population and most advanced of the RSS helping St.lucia. Barbados has the lowest murder rate apart from Antigua whose population is three times less than Barbados. Would be interesting to hear what the Bajans thought of the carnage in St.Lucia and possible solutions.
