The Executive and Ranks of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force wish to congratulate all the awardees.
The Commissioner encourages the awardees to continue making the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force and by extension the people of Saint Lucia proud.
Bravo to the policeman for being awarded as top crime fighter in the Caribbean. This however begs the glaring question – if he is so good why is he only an Inspector after 18 years in the force. Obviously he is not of the butt kissing groups and is dedicated to doing his work right. But St. Lucia oficialdom does not generally like such people. Promote the man!
