Amid mounting concern about crime in Saint Lucia, the Gros Islet police sub-division has invited residents and businesses to a series of meetings to dialogue on addressing the crime situation.
The first meeting is planned for Thursday, December 5, 2019 from 2.00 pm at Coco Palm for the Rodney Bay business community.
“This is a step towards making our communities and businesses safer for all,” according to a statement from the organisers of the event.
They say that the activity will take the form of a crime safety presentation for business.
“The invited companies who sell, install and provide security equipment will put on a brief presentation as to what their company provides,” the organisers disclosed.
Other meetings are planned for Monday, December 9, 2019 for interested persons in Gros Islet Town, Beausejour, Massade, Caye Mange and Monchy at the Gros Islet Human Resource Centre at 5.30 pm; December 11, 2019 for Gros Islet South including Bois D’Orange, Marisule, Corrinth and Grand Riviere at the Corinth Secondary School at 5.30 pm and December 17, 2019 for community groups at the Gros Islet Human Resource Centre at 5.30 pm.
On January 7, 2020, there will also be a Policing My Community forum at a time and place to be announced.
