Saint Lucia Police Meet Stakeholders To Discuss Combating Crime


On Thursday, December 14, 2023, the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force, hosted a meeting with various stakeholders to discuss current crime trends and chart possible interventions and solutions.

The activity, initiated by Commissioner of Police, Crusita Descartes-Pelius, included members of various faith-based organizations, the business fraternity, the arts community, youth groups, government agencies, medical professionals, law enforcement entities and other groups.

The meeting was critical in recognizing the causes of crime and creating meaningful changes in the fight against crime.

The activity formed part of the first phase of consultations geared towards creating a Crime Action Plan, through collaborations which would see not only immediate social interventions, but also long term measures such as possible educational reform and opportunities.

The Commissioner and by extension the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force, thanks all who
participated in this venture.

Such collaborations take us one step closer towards achieving our goal of creating a safer Saint Lucia.

  1. Step in the right direction- keep us updated and the progress. Please do not let it be just talk to appease the public. We want to know how you plan on measuring the progress

  2. Let’s see the follow-up plans and action SOON! Too much talk and not enough actual doing on this island. Oh yes, what happened to the mental health focus?! A lot of talk for a while but no new plans or change in treatments. People (mostly youngish men) in crisis, depression, suicides… There is a root cause to all the crime and deaths, get to that, and develop appropriate policies and plans and IMPLEMENT them! Too many lazy public servants at all levels, happy to take the money and place themselves above others, and not do very much to improve society as a whole. As for Religion, it is a personal choice, and while it has its place, Faith leaders have their own agendas too. “Salvation”, in its heavenly sense, is individualistic and does not translate to changing people’s lives in a community, and in many cases actually divides people. People, not a God of any creed, are the ones who can turn things around by taking responsibility and committing to each other and their communities led by good governance at the top. Hmmmm, that would be good…
