Saint Lucia police have made it clear that they are not taking a threat against officers lightly.
Acting Police Commissioner Milton Desir told a news conference Thursday that the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force is investigating a threat issued against cops on social media.
The threat was issued following the discovery on Tuesday of the body of Benjamin Cyril, 22, of Bois Patat, after what police said was an exchange of gunfire with suspects who opened fire on the law enforcers at Bexon.
Desir told reporters that police are investigating the matter with a view of bringing whosoever is responsible to justice.
“We are not taking this lightly,” the Acting Police Chief declared.
“To threaten police officers I consider it very serious and I would say it is a security concern for Saint Lucia,” Desir asserted.
“When somebody has made serious threats against the police we will get this person in,” Desir stated.
