Police Commissioner Severin Moncherry who returned from leave this week, plans to continue working on building public confidence in the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF).
“I intend to work heavily on community policing. One of the areas I want to continue working on is to restore public confidence in the organisation, boost morale and motivate the men who are working with me,” Monchery told St Lucia Times.
He disclosed that he will continue with existing plans, while reviewing strategies to ensure that the RSLPF is able to serve members of the public effectively and efficiently.
Moncherry said since he has been at the helm of the RSLPF he has done his best and tried everything he can to ensure that his officers perform professionally and efficiently, as they work towards creating citizen safety.
“Since I returned I have reviewed the stats presented and from what I have seen there is not an increase in crime – there is definitely a decrease,” he declared.
“We are hoping that we can continue to take the fight to the criminals,” Moncherry told St Lucia Times, adding that the intention is to further reduce the current crime rate.
