WATCH: Police Commissioner Looks Forward To New Custody Suites


Police Commissioner Cruscita Descartes-Pelius says she and members of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) are looking forward to the new custody suites.

The facility is currently under construction.

The Office of the Prime Minister has said that the new custody suites will alleviate pressure on police stations outside of the capital, improve operational logistics, and enhance security measures in the city.

The new Custody Suites will have eight holding cells – seven for males and one for females.

The previous facility had three holding cells.

  1. Given the rise in the number and frequency of crime in Saint Lucia, in particularly, Castries, there will not be enough custard sweets rooms to hold criminals and then the number of rooms in the custard sweets says it all, seven holding cells for men and one for women…men are overwhelmingly the perpetrators of crime…custody suites sounds posh indeed…I do hope the temporary residents of custody suites will enjoy the taste of custard sweets…pun was defiantly and criminally intended in the writing of this missal.

  2. They don’t build schools anymore, all they build is prison, prison. I personally feel a proper Police Headquarters should hv been built there, Instead of renting all over Castries govt should hv built a proper Police headquarters. This building seems to also be in the middle of a prime lot, stifling proper use of such prime property. Anyways, I maybe eh making sense and a custody suites will maybe improve police operations and lead to less crime in 2024. Renting rooms to house immigration and complaints etc is maybe better that being in your own building. Mah sav.

  3. Lol…’ll police officers are getting what you’ll deserve. Allan’s plans were to good for you’ll. Modern-day inferstructure and fersilities is incomprehensible in you’ll mines. Lol

  4. Re Article..As long as it is a crime to smoke weed and a legalization substance in Canada and else where in our world..Why do we need sooo many jail cells for the most needed one’s?
    We must decriminalize Marijuana in St Lucia and else where in the Caribbean for using weed as a choice instead of using alcohol to the same effect+
    I endorse my thoughts and observations..
    We don’t need no more jails , we need well paying jobs..
