The Royal St. Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) is gearing for an intensified period of both in-house and overseas training and development programmes for police officers. Police Commissioner Mr. Vernon Francois says the training opportunities will deal with various dimensions of policing. However, they are all aimed at helping to further equip the police in the professional and efficient discharge of their duties.

Superintendant of Police responsible for Corporate Services and Community Policing Mr. Severin Moncherry says.  “Community policing is one of the focus areas where training will be provided. Over the past years as part of its policing plans the Royal St. Lucia Police Force has focused its attention on community policing. One would appreciate that community policing involves partnering with relevant stakeholders to fight crime and social disorder.  He says police officers will also receive Human rights training.

Mr Moncherry has denied suggestions that allegations against the police in a US State Department report of extrajudicial killings here.

The two Community Policing courses to be held during this month, February, will benefit fifty (50) police officers from around the island.  The first leg of the course will take place from February 17- 21, 2014 and the next from February 24 – 28, 2014. In addition members of the Royal St. Lucia Police Force will also be engaging in training activity that centers on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law.

Meantime two officers from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), will attend a  training programme hosted by the Regional  Drug Law Enforcement Training Centre (REDTRAC) in Jamaica.

The training   programme is based on the topic ‘Financial Investigation’ and will take place from the 17 – 28, February.
