Francis: Corrupt cops ‘killing’ Caribbean

National Security Minister, Hermangild Francis, has asserted that corrupt police cops are killing the Caribbean.

He urged officers attending Wednesday’s opening ceremony of the intercessional meeting of the Caribbean Federation of Police Welfare Associations (CFPWA), to help police commissioners get rid of ‘undesirables’.

According to Francis, police welfare associations should not merely looking to better salaries and conditions of work for their members.

“This is one of the things that is really killing the Caribbean – the idea of corrupt police officers. We know them. You in the police force, you know them and it is for you to assist the commissioner of police in getting rid of those persons,” the former Deputy Police Commissioner declared.

“At the end of the day it makes your organization a bad organization and you are going to be heaped together with those bad elements in your police force,” he asserted.

Francis observed that in helping to weed out corrupt cops, police forces will become better, the public will have more confidence in the police and when conditions and salaries are negotiated law enforcers will get what they desire ‘within reason.’

He urged police welfare associations to work in tandem with the hierarchy of the police force.

    How many corrupt officers did Francis sack when he was Dept Comm? It seems a little bit of poacher turned gamekeeper.

    Since he was in the belly of the beast a few years ago then I assume he knows what he’s talking about. Perspectives change with time and as one ascends the ladder.
    Is it corrupt cops who sent him the threatening letter?

    This is a clear case where the coal calling the pot black. Politicians are the epitome of corruption. Disproportionately to other professions, politicians run afoul of the law for bribery, misappropriation of money, and many more corrupt practices. Mr. Security Minister, you do nothing to motivate nor inspire your ‘subordinates’. The St. Lucia Police Force has hit rock bottom under your watch. You have done nothing but to further demoralize them. Provide them with the requisite training, human and material resources,(new recruits, proper forensic lab, vehicles, ideal working conditions, satisfactory remuneration) etcetera . Mr. Minister, connect your tongue to your brain before you bloviate.
