Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has reiterated his government’s commitment to providing the resources necessary for members of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) to fight crime and make Saint Lucia a safer place.
Chastanet on Friday attended the graduation of Course 36 of the RSLPF Academy at La Toc.
Writing on his official Facebook page, the PM said it was an afternoon of inspiring speeches and advice to the forty nine newest members of the police force.
“These young men and women have taken on the job of police officers to serve Saint Lucia without fear or favour. Their enthusiasm and perseverance during twenty eight weeks of training is a sign of their dedication and commitment to this profession,” Chastanet asserted.
“Their precision drilling, camaraderie, and enthusiasm are encouraging signs of their willingness to work as a team, and will be the foundation to their lives in the real world of policing,” he said.
“As they go forth into their new career I would like to wish them all the best and thank their families for being supportive of their decision to become police officers,” Chastanet wrote.
He congratulated all the award winners, especially Best Recruit PC 153 Luciano Guarde for their exemplary achievements.
