The island’s acting Police Commissioner has reassured the public that the Royal St Lucia Police force has no reservations or difficulty in allowing the law to take its course in matters where lawmen are implicated in any form of wrongdoing.

The assurance comes following news that three police officers have been charged with stealing bail money at the Richfond Police station.

The issue came to light following an audit that revealed the missing funds.

The officers now face charges including the offence of Stealing by Employee, Failure/refusal to deliver money and False Attestation.

In addressing the local press on the matter on Tuesday, Mr Errol Alexander described the incident as very unfortunate, particularly because the public normally paints all police officers with the same brush.

He however notes that he is  satisfied that the majority of officers are upstanding, ethical, disciplined and law abiding servants of the people.

Meanwhile investigations continue into the disappearance of three firearms and ammunition at the Anse La raye police station.
