BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, DECEMBER 28TH 2011 (CUOPM) – The Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force (RSCNPF) has the potential to become one of the better law enforcement agencies in the Caribbean.
So says Resident Judge His Lordship Mr. Justice Errol Thomas who was invited to give brief remarks to the rank and file of the Force at a Christmas luncheon, which was also attended by Prime Minister the Rt. Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas; Commissioner of Police Mr. C. G. Walwyn; Chief Magistrate, Mrs. Josephine Mallalieu-Webbe and Director of Public Prosecutor, Mrs. Pauline Hendrickson.
“As police officers, you have to exercise the powers that you are given in accordance with the law,” said Justice Thomas.
He urged the lawmen to continue the good work in the police force.
“You have an opportunity with a small force to make the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force one of the better forces in the Caribbean and you are on the road to doing that,” said Justice Thomas, who commended the police officers for the serious work conducted in recent cases which led to the arrest and conviction by a jury of crimes committed by persons.
“I urge you to continue the good work that you have done over the years and continue to take your responsibility seriously,” said Justice Thomas.
