The Bicycle Patrol Unit of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) expanded last week to serve Vieux Fort and Gros Islet.

The expansion occurred on Wednesday, December 22.

According to the RSLPF, Police Commissioner Milton Desir inducted 13 new officers, sworn in as Special Police Constables, into the unit.

The Bicycle Patrol Unit started in Castries as a pilot project with two officers.

However, it became a fully operational department in 2019, recording successes in recovering firearms, traffic management, and school patrols.

The unit has also helped in theft, robbery, and homicide probes.

The RSLPF expects that officers from the unit in Vieux Fort and Gros Islet will contribute to realising community policing goals and result in a faster police response time.

  1. Most of these rookie are laughable. Some are out of shape and a few are underweight. Bring back the days when to be a police officer your chest plays a huge factor in getting you hired. Having 4CXCs do not cut it for me also. In this age, one should have a higher level of qualification to enter the police force. College degree should be the minimum.

  2. The RSLPF iis understaffed. Where are the 150+ covid wardens/ peace officers Bring them back swear them in and put them to use to patrol the streets island wide not for covid but to deter criminals etc. We need all hands on deck!!!!
