New uniforms for City Police Officers are before the cabinet of ministers for approval, the Times has been reliably informed.
The new uniforms were designed by the office of Castries Mayor, Peterson Francis.
They are expected to replace the current white polo shirt and black trousers currently worn by the some 20 City Police officers who were officially sworn in during a ceremony in December, 2016.
According to reports, it is hoped that the launch of the new City Police look will take place next month.
The City Constables are also expected to undergo firearms training with the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) starting this week, it was disclosed.
The training in the use of firearms and policing matters is expected to last for one month in the first instance.
City Police Officers have been involved in a crackdown on a number of offences in the capital, including larceny, spitting, urinating and defecating in public.
Interviews have already begun to recruit an additional 45 officers, the Times has been informed.
