Police Commissioner Severin Moncherry who is back on the job following just over eight months vacation leave has announced that his main priority is to address the high rate of homicide occurring here.
The island has recorded some 34 homicides for 2017 and the Commissioner says the plan is to address the number of illegal guns in the hands of St Lucians.
Moncherry notes that despite the challenges and limitations facing the police force, including the limited capacity of the forensic lab, he is working to get the situation under control.
The police commissioner is also planning to meet with the city Mayor and Constabulary to iron out any kinks with the newly re-established city police.
Moncherry however notes that the unit has been providing much needed support to the Royal St Lucia Police Force.
Meanwhile, the Police Commissioner had high praise for Milton Desir who was charged with heading the RSLPF for the past eight months.
