Public Invited To Voice Concerns At RSS Panel Discussion

Press Release:- A unique opportunity has been presented to the public and they are being   called on to engage in dialogue on Citizen Security with the Regional Security System (RSS) and local  law enforcement officials on Friday, September 20, 2019 at the City Hall in Castries from 10:30 a.m. in the morning.

The Regional Security System (RSS) in collaboration with the Department of Home Affairs and National Security and the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) will jointly    host the panel discussion on the topic “Transitioning the Police from a State-Centered Approach to a Citizen-Oriented Approach to Security “.

The forum has been purposefully  designed so that the public including  persons from various organizations may feel free to  walk in, participate and contribute positively to the discussion.  

The panel discussion is made possible through the   RSS 10th EDF Programme of activities and seeks to contribute towards capacity-building and institutional responses to crime including the illicit trafficking of drugs.

Public support for law enforcement initiatives and understanding of other key social dynamics is expected to be bolstered through an ongoing public awareness campaign which is being led by the Regional Security System (RSS). 

Similar discussions have been hosted in other islands drawing successful reviews. The dialogue in Saint Lucia will be the final edition of a series around the region and will hopefully culminate on a high note.

All specially invited guests are to note that your presence will be highly appreciated at this function.

Once again the Regional Security System is inviting the Saint Lucia public to turn out in great numbers to make this   event meaningful through participation and organizers are hoping to attract diverse voices that are representative of various sectors of the society.
