The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Mem­bers of the Royal Saint Lu­cia Po­lice Force (RSLPF) have re­ceived high praise and com­men­da­tion from the Gov­ern­ment and Peo­ple of the Com­mon­wealth of Do­minica for their ser­vice and as­sis­tance in the af­ter­math of Trop­i­cal Storm Erika.

Dur­ing a visit by Prime Min­is­ter, Hon. Dr. Kenny D. An­thony to Do­minica on Tues­day, Septem­ber 1, 2015 Prime Min­is­ter, Hon. Roo­sevelt Sk­er­rit ex­pressed his grat­i­tude to the ser­vice­men, not­ing that they have been work­ing tire­lessly to as­sist with evac­u­a­tion and the trans­porta­tion of sup­plies to some af­fected ar­eas.

Of­fi­cials from the Do­minica Coast Guard also show­ered praise upon the of­fi­cers of the Marine Unit and Spe­cial Ser­vices Unit (SSU) and high­lighted their ded­i­ca­tion to the cause and ea­ger­ness to as­sist in ev­ery way pos­si­ble.

Dr. An­thony vis­ited Saint Lu­cia’s first re­sponse team on­board the De­fender at the Do­minica Coast Guard base in Fond Cole, Roseau to ex­press his grat­i­tude for their ser­vice and to re­lay the re­views he had re­ceived dur­ing his ear­lier en­coun­ters.

Dur­ing his brief ex­change with the of­fi­cers, the Prime Min­is­ter said, “This visit would not be com­plete if I did not stop by to tell you how proud I am of you and how grate­ful the peo­ple of Do­minica are for your pres­ence and help thus far. The feed­back has been re­mark­able. At home you are also be­ing cel­e­brated for your ser­vice. I sim­ply want to tell you that the peo­ple of Saint Lu­cia are proud of what you do and, here in Do­minica, you are ap­pre­ci­ated.”

In re­sponse, one of the of­fi­cers said he is happy that they are be­ing rec­og­nized for their ser­vice and ef­forts in Do­minica. This, ac­cord­ing to him, gives him and his col­leagues the zeal to con­tinue to work to rep­re­sent Saint Lu­cia well and, crit­i­cally, to bring help to the peo­ple of Do­minica who are depend­ing on their ser­vice.

The of­fi­cers left Saint Lu­cia on the morn­ing of Satur­day, Au­gust 29, 2015 on board the De­fender.
