    Two million dollars for what? Two million dollars, that 2, 000, 000. My God I am beginning to wonder if the numerals in DA are different from the other countries. Everything in that place that gov’t is involved in cost in the millions. Is either 0. 5 million or more. Just can’t understand that!

    would like to know what the architecture reflects? how does it represent our society and the function of policing within this society?

    When will Soufriere have a police station?

    Mr Pinard, would it not be cheaper if a police station was built in Soufriere, instead of renting a private home?

    Isn’t it time that the government gives something substantial back to Soufriere after all the support the people of Soufriere give to the Labour Party?

    Allu too bias. Police “Stations” including “Head Quarters” have been in dilapidated condition for many, many, many, years, long before labor party came into power and nobody was blabbing about it. Now One was restored, everybody have to criticize. Be honest with yourselves. It doesn’t matter which party comes into power, “we” Dominicans are never satisfied. Look at the one in Colihaut. Many of you do not know this, yes Colihaut have a huge building that use to be the “Police Station”. Court use to be held in Colihaut, private homes have been rented for many years as the “Police Station”. Over the years, prisoners have/are being transported to Portsmouth Station for processing.

    I couldn’t believed my eyes when i see the condition of a main police headquarters in Roseau when I went inside for a police report it’s shameful by this administration, The policemen deserve a better environment.
