Police Officers Urged To Watch Their Conduct


Hundreds of police officers whom Police Commissioner Cruscita Descartes-Pelius met from Monday to Thursday have received encouragement to watch their conduct and the image they present to the public while on or off duty.

Descartes-Pelius disclosed that she met about 300 officers who spoke about their concerns and made recommendations on improving their work conditions.

“The workshop was about bringing our officers together. For quite a while we have not had a meeting with especially our female officers and I thought it was imperitive to meet with the male officers as well,” the Police Commissioner stated.

She expressed appreciation for the officers’ hard work despite the job challenges.

But, two meeting facilitators spoke to the officers about maintaining a proper image.

“Their image impacts the organisation,” the Police Commissioner explained.

In this regard, Descartes-Pelius stated that officers must be careful about how they conduct themselves, whether on or off duty.

She emphasised the need for police officers to be respectful and professional.

The Police Commissioner said in that way, the police can gain the public’s trust, thereby fostering a better partnership with the community that would encourage citizens to share crucial information to fight crime.

“We had a productive week. I am very grateful that we came together to discuss their concerns,” Descartes-Pelius said regarding meeting the officers.

“And, of course, with my esteemed executive, we will work on their recommendations to make their working environment more productive and more conducive,” the Police Commissioner said.

  1. The police force is riddle with cockroaches inside. information will continue to leak to RF and there is nothing the police will be able to do about it and gaining public trust will be more negatives.

  2. All these negative comments one will be surprise to know it’s Minevra using all different bogus emails . That’s the works of Unitedpacks

  3. Drug and laundering money has infiltrated and corrupted the force. Criminals may have entered politics and now they may be using their dirty wealth to buy information from compromised officers. This information will be used to keep citizens in terror. Funny how some citizens support this despite the fact that they themselves will fall prey to this evil at the head of the nation. It is time for an independent investigation by Scotland Yard to root out the cancer that has grown in the force. Nobody is safe from persecution until this is done. Our present Commissioner appears to be politically aligned and does not have the strength to deal with these reprobates and their grinning, narcissistic, deadly and vicious master.

  4. When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. And while they were eating, he said, “I tell you the truth,one of you will betray me.”
    They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, “Surely not I, LORD ”❓
    Jesus replied, “The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me…

  5. Cautious no wonder st lucia is in that mess..some of you all Lucian’s are so politically blind you all backwards and gullible..educate yourself
