  2. Dennery and Richfond Stations are shot of staff nothing is been done, vehicles are in deplorable state and no one cares. The Pm needs to pay more attention to the Police Force. Need to respect them for doing a lot with little resources. Then and only then they will perform. Do u think Police will put their lives on the line for a government that don't care about them. Everything is raising but salaries, don't u idiots see that the Pm of the day is the damn problem. When u have a press secretary making more money than hard working civil servants, do u think people are still stupid. The cops are working their buts for no recognition and low pay. Home are the days when it was just a job, there are severAl Police officers now with degrees and even masters. Security of the state is a priority unless it's not treated that way, there will always be lawlessness. Oh and we need a proper Min for security not a RETARD.

  3. It hurts my heart to see so much crime happening in sweet Helen. The more a country develops the more crime we have to deal with. It disgust me whenever crime happens we look to blame everyone but ourselves. What happened to family values yes,we breed children and have no time for them we live them for younger siblings, grandparents and teachers to raise yes parents I am talking to you. We don't want people to correct them when they wrong. They end up unruly while we engage in activities who knows to please our selfish desires. So what you expect. Wake up men and women we remove God and have placed him on a back seat. Well he is the only one who will make a difference. Include him in your daily affairs and see the difference.

    • You obviously haven't realized that we all are the police. So are you saying that you are useless? Stop depending on the paid police to solve crime. We all have to come together to realize our dream of a crime free society.

  6. But when the police are doing their work, they get criticized from all angles: from the prime minister, from government, from the press, from the clergy, from most lucians: so what the hell do you people want from the police ?

  7. St Lucians need to start forming petitions and send to the UN so they can send proper police to help out cause for this year alone, so many citizens crying for help within their communities, people are being threatened out of their homes by so called bad men, with no immediate help, from the police, MR Priminister please address the the rise of crime by these young youths send out your ministers into their respective communities to speak to the people, to give hope to the youths that are vulnerable to crime people need solice on the island MR Prime Minister, Spend some money on training and procedure implementation, that would have every officer to report his daily activities at work for every day, so at some point you can see his competence or his laziness then fire those lazy police officers, that has nothing substantial to report where, especially in crime related areas, AND PLEASE ONE MORE THING MR ANTHONY REMOVE THE GRAVEYARD FROM CASTRIES THE NAME SAYS IT ALL IT HAS LIVED UP TO ITS NAME FOR TOO LONG IN OUR BEAUTIFUL CITY BREEDING SICK SICK YOUTHS BECAUSE THE OLDER FOLKS THAT HAS ALREADY GOTTEN LAND AND HOME FROM FREDRICK STILL SIT THERE AND HARBOUR AND ASSIST THE YOUTHS IN CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES.
    THIS PLACE IS THE MOST DANGEROUS AREAS SPOTTED TO WILL BE TOURISTS COMING TO VISIT. WHY WOULD YOU ALLOW THIS PLACE TO EXIST WHEN CLEARLY ITS A BREEDING GROUND FOR WOULD BE AND WELL KNOWN CRIMINALS . my two cents, there is work to be dun to get lucia back to beeing free from so much crime n for those who say all over have crime go leave all over we need less of this shit

  8. The Police are sitting in the Police Station playing games and doing you know whatelse, while young men congregate all over the community doing drugs, disturbing the peace, keeping people up, swearing loudly, threatening others with weapon, way into the wee hours of the morning. Call the police and no one responds, or they never show up. High street, Victoria street, St. Peter's Street, Church Street, the gangs are breeding there nicely, and fighteningly. THe police are oblivious. People are playing music and having kareoke anyday in the week way into the wee hours of the morning and so loud that your windows shake, and the police are oblivious. Wait till the gang activity becomes like Soufriere then you will try to rush in to deal with it, too late. Alway reactionary. Calling on the authorities to start doing something please and quickly. Dennery is a bubbling pot.

    • I wonder how many times have you assisted in curbing crime in your community by furnishing the police with information. Sit on your arse all day, do nothing and expect the police to solve crime for you. Dennery has been this way for years now. I lived there some 27 years ago and all I saw were young men selling drugs all day. The police would raid them sometimes and when this happens what did you suitwease do? Come crowd the station by the hundreds, stone and threated to burn it down. So stop pretending the this problem is new. Ask yourself what have you done to make your drug infested community a better place. I agree that we must push the police but they need our support too. On another note, if you were a police officer would you go the extra mile for ungrateful citizens like us who only criticize them? Think of it. They are human beings too.

      Some of us invest no time in the proper socialization our kids and expect their teachers and the police to do it for us. Guess what? These days the teachers and the police seem to have no time like us.
