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.
