US helping St. Lucia introduce new initiative to deal with crime

Mayers

The United States is providing assistance to the law enforcement agencies in St. Lucia under a new initiative aimed at curbing crime on the island.

External Security Minister Guy Mayers and members of the St. Lucia Police Force met with the US delegation headed by Robert Olson of the Police Executive Research Forum of Washington on the proposed community policing initiative.

“What we hope will develop over time is that trust will build up and the collaborations will start and the police and citizens will become one in not only fighting crime, because the police cannot solve crimes unless the public wants them to,” Olson told reporters.

    What is wrong with capturing, monitoring and intercepting criminals? I would think that this is the general idea. My question is ‘why is it so difficult for our caribbean police officers to handle populations of less than 100,000 people?’ Out of that there may be about 5,000 serious criminals. Why do we always need outside help? I think we need to revisit our legal system and CCJ. Criminals are not being punished severely enough and so they are set free to repeat their offences which usually gets more serious. We need to revisit our legal/judicial system and punish these people properly.

    Black people are so dumb. Basically white men want to put more of your black behinds in jail so that St. Lucia is a more suitable playground for their vacationers, utter garbage! Stop being slaves black people….when will it end?

    What interest does the US have with St. Lucia. People remember that CSME has given the green light for persons to travel, work and reside in the Caricom countries. The US will use St. Lucia as their base to capture, monitor, and/or intercept known criminals. Mr. Mayers will never explain the entire intentions of the US.
