RSLPF Says No Permission Granted For ‘Park & Chill’, Cites ‘Significant Safety Risk’

- Advertisement -

The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force has become aware of a planned social activity dubbed “Park and Chill”, scheduled for 2:00 p.m. today, Saturday, June 11, 2022 at the IL Pirata Beach in Vieux Fort.

Kindly note that permission for this activity has not been sought by the organizers from office of the Commissioner of Police, nor has permission been granted by any of the other authorizing entities, to include the Office of the Chief Medical Officer and the National Emergency Management Organization.

A risk assessment determined that allowing this activity to take place is likely to pose a significant risk to the safety of patrons and an unnecessary strain on law enforcement resources, given the current crime related situation.

Therefore the public is strongly advised against participating in the planned activity.

  1. ohhhhh keep quiet rslpf the hypocracy . is that the only activity that does not have permission to do stuff like that but it still happens? La croix had a car wash with a car playing endless of music with girls winning their dirty black behinds yesterday yall didnt go and stop it

  2. Does the RSLPF have any word on the events held by a certain young police officer on high street Dennery almost every week?

  3. There is a high level of gang and gun shot activity in the VF area ..therefore don’t you think it would be in the community’s best interest not to hold this event.

    • Do you know the organizers of the event and are they part of the gang war going on across the island? Then I think some of us need to think before we make statements to tarnish others reputation. This activity maybe not by that name has been going on for quite a while. All during the tighten COVID-19 protocols. Where was Day Zee and the rest of the force. I guess sleeping or with vehicles parked by women’s homes.

  4. I guess carnival is off then. A relatively small event will drain police resources.Carnival on the other hand where people dress up and show up en masse to drink and grind on each other is no big deal.I guess there is no crime on carnival days in st Lucia . Oh and no crime on Friday nights in gros islet either.

    You guys need to wake up and realize the bait and switch routine your government is using to fool most of you.Why would you need permission to gather peacefully in a democracy in the first place.?Isn’t that your right as a citizen? That sounds like some autocratic BS to me.

    Oh and no crime when those ridiculous motorcades are taking place during election seasons.

  5. This notice is just another way of saying park and chill at your own risk. Expect the unexpected including gun shots ! Don’t say you were not warned.

  6. Technically, Park and Chill might still be on. You park your car at the said location, then you chill at custody suites

  7. It states permission was not sought to host the activity from the relevant agencies . All event planners knows the rules. This means the planner will be charged and also persons who attend. The Police is advising them prior to the event!!

  8. A risk assessment determined that allowing this activity to take place is likely to pose a significant risk to the safety of patrons and an unnecessary strain on law enforcement resources, given the current crime related situation.???? are you F#$&@+! KIDDING ME what the hell are you guys doing to stop the crime in St Lucia??? let me take a guess NOTHING…….

  9. If you have to advise against one you have to advise against all. And I mean from the smallest to the largest. Otherwise people won’t take you seriously.
