Trib­ute to first fe­male of­fi­cer of the RSLPF

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Royal Saint Lu­cia Force would like to pay trib­ute to one of its own re­tired of­fi­cers, Mrs. Veronica Adley of Hos­pi­tal Road, Castries.

Mrs. Adley was the first fe­male to be en­listed in the Royal Saint Lu­cia Po­lice Force, in 1958. She re­tired at the rank of As­sis­tant Su­per­in­ten­dent of Po­lice after 31 years of ser­vice to the or­ga­ni­za­tion.

On Thurs­day Novem­ber 27, 2014 the Com­mis­sioner and other mem­bers of his hi­er­ar­chy paid a call to the res­i­dence of Mrs. Adley dur­ing the Po­lice Week’s ‘sick and shut-in’ vis­its to re­tired po­lice of­fi­cers. The 80-year-old re­tiree was in good spir­its and en­joyed the visit by the of­fi­cers. She was also very grate­ful for the to­ken gift brought to her on that day.

Mrs. Adley spoke fondly of her days within the or­ga­ni­za­tion and re­mained in touch with it by tun­ing in ev­ery Wed­nes­day to the po­lice ra­dio pro­gramme on Ra­dio St. Lu­cia, “Call the Po­lice”.

On Sun­day Novem­ber 30, 2014 the sad news of the pass­ing of Mrs. Adley was an­nounced. It is with deep sad­ness that the RSLPF con­veys con­do­lences to the fam­ily of this pi­o­neer of­fi­cer. The Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice and other of­fi­cers are in­deed happy to have shared in the last mo­ments of her life.

Mrs. Veronica Adley: the first fe­male to be en­listed in

the Royal Saint Lu­cia Po­lice Force.
