City Police To Launch Emergency Hotline

The City Police  Department  plans to officially launch its emergency hotline this  month, it has been announced.

The office of Mayor, Peterson Francis,  says the new service will enable members of the public  to report unlawful activities and make general inquiries.

The three-digit toll-free emergency phone line  will also permit City Police Officers to speedily respond to any incidents taking place within the City of Castries, the office of the Mayor said in a press release.

 According to Mayor Francis, introducing such a new service is designed to reduce the pressure on the official 999 system.  

“The emergency phone line will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We believe in not only safety and security within Castries, but also contributing nationally to the efforts of our hardworking law enforcement officers,” Francis explained.

He disclosed that the new service will be an added feature to the already existing 999.

“We are easing the strain and therefore would wish that citizens, residents and visitors within the city of Castries use the new service purposefully,” Francis stated.
