The Star (St. Lucia) - - ADVERTISEMENT -

TIME has usu­ally been the an­swer to many lin­ger­ing con­cerns and this phe­nom­e­non has ap­par­ently proven to be spot on. Many St. Lu­cians will to­day come to terms with the de­ci­sion taken by the cur­rent ad­min­is­tra­tion based on the in­for­ma­tion which has un­folded. In June of 2011, suc­cess­ful ne­go­ti­a­tions were un­der­taken with the firm of The D.ZIGN Group to ad­dress the par­lous state of the po­lice head­quar­ters and the fa­mous jail, un­for­tu­nately, the UWP ad­min­is­tra­tion lost the 2011 elec­tions and so all the plans lay idle in the cor­ri­dors of gov­ern­ment for al­most 6 years. We were for­tu­nate enough to lay our hands on th­ese plans and now take the op­por­tu­nity to un­veil same to the pub­lic. The ar­chi­tec­tural firm of The D.ZIGN Group has re­struc­tured and en­hanced over 50 po­lice head­quar­ters world­wide as this ar­chi­tec­tural firm spe­cial­izes in this field. The plans high­lighted to­day are an on­go­ing ex­am­ple of what the gen­eral area will rep­re­sent when com­pleted ver­sus the eye sore in the midst of the city. Progress must not be de­nied to the se­cu­rity of our na­tion as jus­tice and the rule of law are con­sid­ered the hall­mark of the RSLPF which re­main the back­bone of a sys­tem which needs to be se­ri­ously ad­dressed. We hope that the Na­tional Trust in its at­tempt in play­ing petty pol­i­tics will re­al­ize the dam­age it has em­barked upon - LET BET­TER SENSE PRE­VAIL.
