Moncherry: Cops, Government Workers ‘Capitalise’ On ‘Mould’ To Report Sick

Police Commissioner Severin Moncherry, vowing that he will continue to fight for his men and ensure that whatever working conditions they have is the best, has urged police officers to do their best even when there is mould.

He told a ceremony earlier this week to hand over the newly renovated Soufriere police station that the main role of law enforcement officers is to serve and protect.

Moncherry declared that officers have to work with what they have.

“So even sometimes when there is mould we need to  do our best and not just give up – throw out hands in the air and say ‘I cannot work’,” he asserted.

“Because I believe that not just police officers but sometimes other government workers capitalise on the mere word ‘mould’ to report sick,” the Police Commisssioner told his audience.

“We have a whole lot of specialists in that area these days that  anyone can tell you when there is mould; so Mr. Minister you don’t need to invest in H&L and the others. We have specialists all over the place who can tell you when there is mould,” Moncherry told the audience which included National Security Minister, Hermangild Francis.

Mould growth has been an issue affecting a number of police  and government departments with the problem being recently confirmed at the Vieux Fort police station.

  1. You commish need to not come work again . You have failed at your position and is time we blame you for not caring and taking this job for a joke !! Resign please

  2. Mr Commissioner, you need to get more information on mold. This can kill you and you are saying that officers have to work with what they have and do their best are you kidding me? A good friend/colleague of mine in another jurisdiction is now very sick because just like you, the government and the police Commissioner were of the same mindset. Now he sued them and was awarded 5 million dollars, however he is now on a denialist machine. The money cannot restore his health.

  3. ANY WHERE MOLD IS.U MUST STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.THAT CAN KILL U AND CAUSE MANY COMPLICATIONS TO UR BODY.IN ST.CROIX SOME SCHOOL HAVE MOLD AND ITS CLOSED UNTIL THE MATTER IS RESUME.SO MR SEVERIN ITS DANGEROUS WORKING IN ANY AREA WITH MOLD.ITS BAD FOR UR HEALTH.THANK U

  5. Send Dwightus to work in moldy conditions. With the papishow you saying deh. The nerve of some people. Nothing that comes out of you’ll mouth should be taken seriously because it’s not genuine.

  6. These foolish statement just exposes how these high level public servants think. Mold is very dangerous to human beings health, if you have to have proper working conditions for people to do their jobs. Because when workers get cancer the government does not cover their medical bills. I hope the journalist asked him follow up questions after that stupid comment

  7. The most incompetent commissioner of all time!! Highest murder rate under your watch!! Crime gone out of control!! This guy is a joker. You know nothing about mould. Stick to your speciality which is crime fighting!! Then again the rate of crime has surged since you became boss!! Resign now!! You aint got a clue!! You should have been transferred since last year at least!!!

  8. Mr. Commissioner, I understand you have a primary responsibility to protect and serve and you need boots on the ground to achieve this. However, your comments trivialize the mold issue. There is Medical Research validating the impact of mold on human health. If your men and women are not healthy they cannot perform their jobs. It would be best to first acknowledge the mold issue and tell your officers of the actions you and the government are taking to resolve it. Reassure them with words of hope not sarcasm so in spite of mold they may be willing to put their health on the line and show up.
