PM Expresses Support For Police

Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, has voiced support for Saint Lucia police as they wrap up a one-week training session in human rights and social justice.

The Session is being facilitated by Howard University Lecturer and Human Rights Expert Doctor Edwin Powell.

Police Officers, Fire fighters, Ports police Officers, Correctional Officers and representatives of the City Police  are in attendance at the event which ends Friday at at the National Apprenticeship Programme conference room in Vieux Fort.

“I wish to express my government’s continued support for all law enforcement officers in Saint Lucia who continue, on a daily basis, to serve our country,” Prime Minister wrote on his official Facebook page.

His remarks came as police are coming under increasing public scrutiny in the face of a spate of armed robberies and gun violence.

The country has recorded four homicides for the year, the latest occurring this week at Jacmel in which a Syrian national was gunned down.


  1. The PM needs to produce a sensible strategic plan to reduce crime. This is the top priority at this point in time for the country. This particular problem needs the administration undivided attention. It’s getting very scary out there.

  2. You support the police and you have them working in such deplorable conditions. Gros islet station is filthy mess. The capital of the island does not have a police station and this is how you support the police. Over one million dollars was spent to retrofit a business establishment to use as a court house. Give them the unused courthouse on laborie street for Central Police Station. That will be a start.

  3. PM, is that all you have to say for the development of our police force? What have you done? You have not change nothing Sir!
