The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

As we cel­e­brate the fes­tive sea­son, we, The Royal Saint Lucia Po­lice Force, would like to sin­cerely thank the cit­i­zens of Saint Lucia for the con­tri­bu­tion they have made to­wards the main­te­nance of law and or­der. We will un­der­take to en­sure that our suc­cess con­tin­ues into the New Year.

Re­gard­less of who we are, crime af­fects us all. This is why it is para­mount that the po­lice and the cit­i­zenry sus­tain its re­la­tion­ship in the fight against crime. We can­not over em­pha­size the im­por­tance of com­mu­nity in­volve­ment in the con­tin­ued bat­tled against those who wish to desta­bi­lize the peace and tran­quil­ity of this lovely coun­try.

Thus far, we have been able to ex­pe­ri­ence tremen­dous suc­cess in man­ag­ing crime. This suc­cess is at­trib­uted to var­i­ous new crime fight­ing strate­gies im­ple­mented this year and also the un­wa­ver­ing as­sis­tance given by the pub­lic.

We have also ex­pe­ri­enced a de­crease in traf­fic fa­tal­i­ties and ac­ci­dents re­sult­ing in se­ri­ous per­sonal in­juries. For this, we say thank you to the mo­tor­ing pub­lic.

I would like to thank the hard­work­ing and re­silient men and women of the RSLPF for their con­tin­ued ded­i­ca­tion to duty. Your per­for­mance for the year has been one wor­thy of note.

I would also like to thank our law en­force­ment part­ner agen­cies for their con­tin­ued sup­port. You aug­ment our or­ga­ni­za­tion by be­ing eyes where we can’t see and ears where we can’t hear.

Thanks to the nu­mer­ous non-govern­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tions around the is­land. I en­cour­age you to con­tinue the good so­cial work that you un­der­take. You reach out to the so­cial con­scious­ness of our peo­ple, giv­ing them hope for a bet­ter and brighter fu­ture.

Thank you to the me­dia for the con­struc­tive role that you have played in the dis­sem­i­na­tion of in­for­ma­tion to mem­bers of the pub­lic.

To you who will be cel­e­brat­ing Christ­mas may you have the joy, bless­ing and con­tent­ment of this oc­ca­sion. En­sure that you cel­e­brate in mod­er­a­tion, not for­get­ting tomorrow.

On be­half of the Ex­ec­u­tive and other mem­bers of the Royal Saint Lucia Po­lice Force, I wish you all a Merry Christ­mas and a Happy New Year.

Act­ing Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Er­rol Alexan­der.
