Police Detain Twelve Suspects During Vieux Fort Operation


On Wednesday, February 14, 2024, the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) demonstrated its commitment to public safety by conducting a comprehensive joint operation in Vieux-Fort.

This operation involved multiple units of the RSLPF, showcasing their dedication and hard work.

This measure was initiated due to a concerning rise in firearm-related crimes and homicides in the southern town of Vieux Fort.

The RSLPF’s objective was to target and disrupt the operations of individuals involved in these activities, aiming to curb the increase in violence in the region.

The operation was successful, with fourteen (14) Warrants to Search for Property being executed and twelve (12) suspects in various murders, and gang-related activities being detained, further emphasizing the RSLPF’s relentless efforts in maintaining law and order.

Preceding the operation, Commissioner Crusita Descartes-Pelius engaged in dialogue with various stakeholders, including the Parliamentary Representative and Mayor, in Vieux-Fort, to speak to strategies for reclaiming our streets.

This operation represents the first step in a sequence of scheduled police activities geared towards reducing crime in the southern division.

Public consultations will continue, as the RSLPF seeks to restore law and order throughout our country.

There are women who lack education and skills who are involve in the activities of their sons please give them long prison sentences thieves and murderers who refuse to go and work for 3 to 5 dollars an hour like the rest of us

  3. Blite you sound like one of the criminals
    I am sure that you can’t sleep at nights as you have blood on your hands you are one of the cowards and cockroaches but your days are numbered . The police need to keep the pressure on especially on weekends block the entry points and search all houses those criminals have nothing and the majority of them are still living at their mothers home like I said those women are involve in harbouring those useless cockroaches who are members of criminal gangs ….

  4. Good job officers – a sure sign of hard work. You have been proven to be reactive many times. However, you need to start working smart. Show us you are capable of being proactive. Show us you a capable of being “the man in the middle.” You are capable of intercepting. You can collect evidence and follow the evidence. Most importantly, show us you are worthy to be trusted with intelligence. Trap the criminals before they act.

    Where evil 😈hides it face, GOD will reveal !
    Good efforts and good move !
    May your work produce with trusty and your labour not in vain,promptly by honesty and your endurance for all inspired by good deeds !!!

  6. I offering my forensic skills for Free…. I want my country to be crime free. The population is too small for this shit to happen. Everyone needs to get onboard.. either you on board or over board

  7. The police force does have some hard working and honest men and women but sad to say they have no support

  8. Anonymous clown I read an article in the Jamaica gleaner yesterday February 16 . Over 900 rounds of ammunition, 64 guns seized at Kingston Wharf very interesting ……the shipment came from the USA. The police commissioner is PLEADING with the diaspora to desist from contributing to violence in their homeland……very interesting St Lucia could learn from this. We are having the same issue her our PM and commissioner needs to call out the diaspora just the same.
