PRESS RELEASE – In light of the recent spate of rape and other sexual assaults in Saint Lucia, the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) has initiated special measures to tackle these sex crimes. The RSLPF highly condemns those inhumane, barbaric and reprehensible acts which are vicious violations of some of the basic fundamental rights of our men and women.
The RSLPF will leave no stone unturned in ensuring the protection and safety of our men and women, by putting measures in place to reduce or prevent such brutal and uncivilized attacks and to bring perpetrators of such crimes to justice.
In this vein, the RSLPF has put in place among other measures a specially dedicated team to complement the overwhelmed Vulnerable Persons Team. The duties of this newly formed team will include surveillance and Intel driven patrols aimed at reducing incidents of rape and apprehension of perpetrators of such crimes.
The RSLPF takes this opportunity to reassure the general public that it continues to be committed to fight crime and social disorder in Saint Lucia. The RSLPF will do everything within the confines of the Law to ensure the safety of all people in Saint Lucia.
