On Monday, Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre congratulated the police, observing that there had not been a homicide in twenty-five days.
“Let me tell you, it’s twenty-five days now. There has not been any homicide in the country. The last homicide was twenty-five days ago. It’s not a good record, but I want to congratulate the police,” Pierre, responsible for National Security, stated.
“But these things do not make the news,” he told reporters on the margins of a Cabinet meeting.
“We must congratulate the police. We must encourage them in what they’re doing,” the Prime Minister stated.
Pierre said he would be happy if there were no homicides for the entire year.
He also disclosed that the police received two new vehicles this week.
Pierre noted that the police are getting resources.
According to the police, Saint Lucia has so far recorded seventy-one homicides for 2023.
