Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has reiterated a warning against attempts to destabilise the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF), telling reporters that such destabilising would not help any political party.
Pierre, responsible for National Security, described the RSLPF as a neutral, apolitical body.
“It is wrong for the United Workers Party to be deliberately attempting to stir discord in the Saint Lucia police force,” the Castries East MP declared on the sidelines of Monday’s Cabinet meeting.
According to Pierre, that’s not good politics.
He explained that in the final analysis, the police force must protect all Saint Lucia citizens.
“A criminal doesn’t know a UWP. A criminal is a criminal. So if you believe that you can score political points on Philip J. Pierre by creating instability in the police services or the correctional, you’re not going anywhere with that because criminals do not know any party,” the Saint Lucia Prime Minister asserted.
“I want to tell them that elections are due in 2026. The Prime Minister can call it whenever he wants. So let us raise the level of debate. Let’s debate issues,” Pierre said.
