  4. I commend the job of this Police Officer for placing his life at risk off duty to apprehend a thief. This shows the level of commitment and seriousness that some of our people put into executing their duties. Bravo police officer but I will advise you next time please call for help first before you make an attempt like this. The thief could have been armed. I salute you nonetheless for your bravery!!

  5. Wham there u talking a whole load of crap u need to ride with the popo for a month. The lack of resources yet they have to perform mammoth tasks. U ignorant being look at a British officer belt it has everything
    on but a firearm. Look at a police officer he carries a firearm not all of them not all have a handcuff most times 2 per station. Every officer in England is issued a bullet proof vest here u have a few per station imagine using someone sweaty shirt. Get it now and the list goes on England has the resources to so all kind of surveillance cause the have the millions If not billions. That is y they have one of the best police force. Only an idiot will compare the police force of a developing country to one of a developed country.

    • A search warrant to catch a wanted man seen on the streets. You seem to be the only backward and also STUPID person (you can't be a St.Lucian).

      • What?, I think 'lucian' was referring to an earlier commentator (missy & bri) who said the Police needed a search warrant, bcuz I also commented on the search warrant topic.

    • The WARRANT for his arrest was already issued.... since he was "WANTED".... lol so a search warrant wasn't necessary there.
