  5. Let us do the same in Vieux Fort especially on the outskirts of town in places like;
    Pierrot, Grace, Bel View and environs.
    Those guys believe they have the right to do as they please.

  6. I passed the officers on Monday night and thought it was unusual them being at Marigot doing searches. I applaud the efforts and would like to see this done weekly. It gets weapons and drugs off the streets. The faster they confiscate them, the faster the come. The police should increase the searches and frustrate the hooligans...personally I don'd mind being delayed just so I can feel that much safer. Let's not make this a one time thing.

  7. Yes, this is the kind of proactiveness we need to maintain from the force. Last week I drove through town and from the Chausee to SLASPA police officers were on patrol. I was thoroughly impressed. It's a wonderful thing, seeing your tax dollar at work.

  8. This should be a routine. stop and search should not be done today and forgotten for the rest of the year. Arrest, charge and get money out of those idiots. if they have no license charge and impound them. plenty countries make money off fools that way.

  10. I would like to praise those retired officers who were called back to serve, though they are tired and weary but these guys are to be emulated and should be given a special award for selfless service.
    Outstanding job guys!

I can’t praise you for the doing the job you are being paid to do ........ is like praising a politician for bringing in investors , assholes it you’ll job . I should ask wtf happen last year ........ straight to the minister and commissioner ..

  16. Wow, you know how long I have been waiting for the police officers in st lucia to start just randomly searching places/people/ vehicles. Like smh it take them long but finally. I hope this continues and gets better. Like how I see it is, as long as you care fully tinted " search " you looking like a bad boy " search "
    You look at me wrong " search ". Now I know this abusing power but it would get alot of terrible people off the streets. Most young boys always strap down these days even on bus with you the guys there with their gun smh. Like I'm young but I really like this and I hope it develops into something bigger and better.

    • Welcome to the club. The police stop me all the time. My vehicle documents have never been more up-to-date than when those last few tickets had to be paid. I even paid in advance for insurance.
