RSLPF Going All Out To Ensure Successful World Cup Cricket


The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) will be pulling out all the stops to ensure that Saint Lucia successfully hosts matches in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

The assurance came from Deputy Police Commissioner Ronald Phillip.

Phillip reiterated that the police force is fully prepared, with an operational plan in place and officers ready to implement it.

“I could assure the public that the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force is going to do all in its power to ensure that cricket world cup is successful,” the Deputy Police Commissioner stated.

Saint Lucia will host six ICC T20 World Cup matches from June 15 -24 at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium.

Just recently, Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre, responsible for National Security, disclosed that Saint Lucia and other Caribbean host countries for the Men’s T20 World Cup are taking all necessary measures to ensure the event’s safety and security.

“Like a good jazz, we expect good cricket,” Pierre told reporters, referencing Saint Lucia’s successful hosting of its acclaimed Jazz and Arts festival from April 30 to May 12.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the International Cricket Council (ICC) have declared that safety and security are their utmost priority for the World Cup matches.

Both organisations have assured all stakeholders that they are fully committed to ensuring a safe and secure environment for the T20 World Cup.

The assurances came amid reports that Trinidad & Tobago Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley had confirmed that security agencies were monitoring a possible terror threat to the event.

“The threat of terrorism – we are taking all the necessary steps to deal with,” Saint Lucia’s Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre stated.

  1. we want a safe st Lucia not just for cricket. the same measures you all want to implement for cricket implement it from now and beyond. if you can do it for cricket so it means there are things that can be done and you just not doing it for the people

  2. After World cup back into Business as usual more Crime .The police have to be on the road 24Hours in every Community Conducting Searches .Too many police officers performing Special Duty and don’t give a Damm about police Duties

  3. We want our women to feel safe in Saint Lucia too. No one should have the right to violate them and continue to hold office or be protected by politics and politicians.

  4. Same shit different day from those policemen. While they maybe achieving a little success with their expired strategies, I strongly believe if those strategies are reviewed and updated, a lot more can be achieved. They can be more proactive than reactive. Too many times they wait for the crime to happen before they can act.
    The criminal elements of today are very different from those of ten years ago. The criminals change their approach all the time while the police use the same expired approach on a daily basis. We are desperate need of leaders who are receptive to change and willing to make changes to fit the need

  5. I have always said that we should acknowledge that there is a subtle war happening on our island. Therefore to tackle crime we need a war like approah. Make sure that we have surveillance by land, air and sea of the entire island. Install cameras on every street and helicopters and or drones for residential or remote areas. When persons know tbat they are watched and that there are no enablers at the helm to encourage crime, that should deter them. This is my humble two cents.
