The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) has selected 200 individuals for training  as COVID Wardens, beginning next week.

They were chosen from among over 500 applicants.

Deputy Police Commissioner, Milton Desir, says the  final selection followed an interview process.

The wardens will assist the police in ensuring that people comply with existing COVID-19 protocols.

“You would appreciate that to have new persons coming into the job they will need some briefing, they will need some training in terms of writing reports, writing station diaries, their mode of patrol and so on,” the Deputy Police Commissioner told a news conference on Friday.

He explained that during initial training which is expected to last for one week, the wardens will be paired with senior officers on patrol so the newcomers can become familiar with what is required of them

According to Desir, when the wardens perform their duties they will be in the company of  police officers.

“Officers would take the lead – officers would supervise them. They will be in various districts so that this would give them the opportunity to deal with COVID issues and the police officers especially, at this Christmas season, will deal with matters of a criminal nature,” he stated.

However, Desir said this would not prevent the regular police officers from also assisting with ensuring people comply with  COVID-19 protocols.
