The Soufriere Regional Development Foundation (SRDF) recently held a consultation on crime mitigation and visitor harassment in conjunction with the District Representative for Soufriere – Fond St. Jacques, Hon Emma Hippolyte, and high-ranking police officials from the Southern Division of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF).

β€œIt’s incumbent on the organization to play a pivotal role in linking the necessary resources to ensure that our community thrives as a safe haven for all its residents, there must be a zero tolerance to crime in all its forms,” said SRDF Operations Manager, Lester Cazaubon.

The SRDF is looking to bolster its social outreach and human empowerment programs to reduce the propensity for criminal activity.

Additionally, the district representative has been actively engaged with the RSLPF in Soufriere to add support to address the shortcomings and capacity needed to strengthen
its operations.

  1. In light of the recent events involving gun violence in Soufriere, the consultation is a critical step. In Soufriere, we need to bring back sport teams in both football and cricket. Participation in clubs and organizations gives the youth a sense of belonging, purpose and enhance self esteem/concept. Education is of paramount importance in reducing crime. Most of the perpetrators were not successful in school or drop outs. Therefore, investment in schools to provide academic/behavioral interventions/support to challenging students will help in producing productive and law abiding youths.

  2. Soufriere’s tourism products serve to amplify our culture, passion and warm friendly personality as a people. it is of crucial importance that we eradicate any attempt whether by unwanted, attitude and unacceptable behaviour, that threaten to erode the gains that we have made over the decades.
