RSS Extends Saint Lucia Security Support


The Regional Security System (RSS) extended its security assistance support to the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) on Saturday, May 27.

The announcement appeared on the RSS Facebook page.

The Member States engaged in the security operation were the Antigua and Barbuda Defence Force, the Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda, the Barbados Police Service, the Barbados Defence Force, and the Royal Grenada Police Force.

RSS said it continues to provide the necessary support to the RSLPF in the spirit of the Treaty to assist in the time of need to ensure a safer region for all citizens and visitors alike.

At Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre’s request, RSS officers arrived in Saint Lucia in March in response to a significant outbreak of deadly gun violence in Vieux Fort.

And in an address to a public meeting of his ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) on Thursday, Pierre, responsible for National Security, thanked regional Prime Ministers for allowing their officers to assist Saint Lucia in its anti-crime battle.

But he explained that his administration was also working with civil society and all men and women of goodwill in addressing the crime problem.

In addition, Pierre said his administration was creating opportunities for young people whom he urged to stay away from criminal gangs.
