On Friday, October 13, 2023, the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force and the Praedial Larceny Unit conducted a one-day workshop at the Police Force Academy. The workshop was aimed at developing and motivating law enforcement officials to work better and serve better. Twenty serving officials participated in the workshop, where they honed their skills in statement recording, interviewing techniques, file preparation, and managing crime scenes as first responders.
The workshop was conducted under the guidance of Acting Assistant Superintendent Mathew of the Criminal Investigations Department, Inspector Ferdinand and Sergeant Joseph of the Major Crimes Unit. The participants were introduced to techniques that are aimed at enhancing their skillsets. One of the participants expressed gratitude for the opportunity and said, “What we learned here today will definitely aid us in our careers. The workshop was well-organized.”
By investing in training programmes like this one, the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force is demonstrating its commitment to preparing its human resource, and that of partner agencies to function effectively and efficiently. Such initiatives can lead to better customer service, increased productivity, a more positive work environment, and a safer Saint Lucia.
