Descartes-Pelius Says Police Determined To ‘Raise The Bar’


Police Commissioner Cruscita Descartes-Pelius has expressed the determination of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) to make a difference in Saint Lucia.

“We are determined to make a difference in this country. We are determined to raise the bar,” Descartes-Pelius told reporters on Monday.

She spoke on the margins of a sod-turning ceremony for a Northern Divisional Police Headquarters in Massade, Gros-Islet.

The Police Chief urged RSLPF members to be the best they can be, ‘top tier’ officers, to make Saint Lucia a better place.

“We remain committed to giving them the necessary training that they need to enable them to perform their duties effectively, efficiently,” Descartes-Pelius stated.

Despite the RSLPF’s challenges, she explained that officers are doing their best.

Descartes-Pelius met about three hundred officers last week to express appreciation for their hard work, hear their concerns, and urge them to watch their on and off-duty conduct.

She observed that by exemplary conduct, police officers would build better relationships with the public, which is essential to fighting crime.

  1. Good idea Chief. Let us start with the investigation into the sexual allegations from the female officers and also while you are at it, investigate the latest acknowledgment from Richard Frederick. These two would be a good start to show how serious you are. Until then I do not think you can make a difference

  2. Once you have RF in power your police force will climax itself to maximum corrupt practices. You cannot bark on media, when RF mouth is wide as pacific ocean. The nonse he does clap through his lips will forever place citizens to have low trust in the police force. You might want to differ but trust me a lot of snakes are inside the force getting paid to do it too.

  3. Raise the bar or don’t drain the bar. I think is the latter. The I’s have it. The I’s have it.

  4. I wonder which BAR she hopes to raise. Right now the only bar I see the police raising is the one they sit at from sunrise to next sunrise consuming alcohol and where police vehicles are parked 24/7. When the citizenry calls for police assistance, they never have transportation. Yet I heard the PM boasting that he has doubled the fleet of police transportation since assuming office.

  5. With some of these unprofessional police officers we have in the Babonneau police station?smh
    Rum drinkers 🤷🏾‍♂️
