Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has offered congratulations to the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) while responding on Monday to a reporter’s question regarding a ‘lull’ in reports of violent crime.

He was asked whether the lull might be due to the recent donation of vehicles to law enforcement officers.

“I want to congratulate the police. I want to tell them keep it up. The police have an important job to do. We are trying to make all the resources available,” Pierre, responsible for National Security, said.

“ I am keeping my fingers crossed. I want to thank the police for what they have done so far and tell them to continue pushing. They will get all the support from us. Let’s see if we can keep the situation as it is now,” the Castries East MP said.

Pierre had recently expressed alarm over a spate of violent crime resulting in seventeen homicides this year and promised to introduce tough new laws.

“We are going to be stiffening the penalties, and there are going to be very draconian penalties when it comes to guns and ammunition,” he told reporters recently.

  1. Violent crime is not only murder. That’s why I want to know where is the lull? There has not been a death for about a week or two but many people have been shot at, at hospital nursing gun shot injuries, chopped with cutlasses, brutalized for they money and property. Everyday these incidents occur at an alarming rate so where is the lull.

  2. Waaa pjp that’s how we stay deh your fingers just crossed and your eyes closed…man you are a coward.

  3. It is always a good feeling and gives you more motivation to work when you have done a good job and get a thank you or praise from your higher up. While some police officers who deserve promotion don’t get it they love the job they do and getting a thank you from the pm means a lot to them. When the police does something bad even if it’s in the line of performing their duties we lambash them so why not praise them when they do the good. It’s team spirit to help bring betterment to stlucia even in terms of crime fighting. Let’s all work together to bring about changes and a better and safer st Lucia. To our troubled youth out there god loves you and never let anyone tell you differently. When you need someone to talk to talk to god like you would talk to someone you know even if you cannot see god. I promise you he will hear you and help you never think that fighting or killing is the way out. Also never believe that you are worth nothing no matter your condition or what you are facing. Trouble last for a while so connect with god and let him do the rest because he surely loves you even when you think that no one does. Peace and love

  4. Isn’t it premature to congratulate the police on a lull in violent crime just because someone has not been killed in what – a week? 2 weeks? this is a lull in st. lucia? that’s how low we’ve fallen. My God.
    I believe that robberies and burglaries are more serious since these murders are 99% of the time targeted – thugs towards other thugs. But burglaries and robberies target everyone in the country and these contribute to so much trauma throughout the populace. The trauma is what nobody realizes is the adverse effect of the actions of these thieves. has there been a lull in burglaries and robberies? are murders the only crimes that matter in this country? Let’s address the fact that people cannot sleep at night for fear that their homes and families and property will fall victim to these thieves.

  5. “ I am keeping my fingers crossed. I want to thank the police for what they have done so far and tell them to continue pushing. They will get all the support from us. Let’s see if we can keep the situation as it is now,” the Castries East MP said.”

    THIS IS NOT A STRATEGY – WE WANT TO KNOW YOUR STRATEGY TO COMBAT CRIMES. Please Mr. PM, stop bullshitting the public and looking for sympathy. You were elected to do many jobs and one of them is the security of the nation – Please get to work with all your TV nonesense.
