Executive Director of the Regional Security System (RSS), Commodore Errington Shurland, this week visited RSS troops deployed to assist Saint Lucia in its anti-crime efforts.

The RSS officers from the Barbados Police Service, the Barbados Defence Force, and the Royal Grenada Police Force discussed various matters with Shurland.

And he thanked them for their commitment and significant contribution to the Saint Lucia anti-crime initiative.

In March this year, Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre invited the RSS to send officers to Saint Lucia to help the country battle crime after a surge in deadly gun violence in Vieux Fort.

On Monday, Home Affairs Minister Dr. Virginia Albert-Poyotte explained that the presence of RSS troops in Saint Lucia had boosted the human resource and technical capability to deal with crime.

“Since the arrival of RSS officers, the unparalleled escalation in violent gun crimes had abated significantly and we want to place on record our gratitude for your invaluable support over the last few months,” Albert-Poyotte said.

The Babonneau MP spoke at the RSS Unity Exercise (UNEX) launch in Saint Lucia.

UNEX aims to improve mechanisms for regional cooperation within the RSS in response to security issues such as drug trafficking, terrorism, and other threats to border security.

Saint Lucia will host the activity from April 3 to 14, 2024.
