The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Colin John in his remarks at the recent police awards and recognition ceremony, stated a number of accomplishments made by the RSVPF in 2018 as a result of the hard work and dedication displayed by the officers under his command.
One such achievement is the reduction in the number of homicides in St Vincent committed for the year 2018, which is recorded at 34 in comparison to 39 that was recorded for the similar period in 2017.
The COP also took the time to thank the citizens of SVG for supporting and assisting the police by providing vital information that eventually aided in the apprehension and prosecution of criminals.
Commissioner John also commended the contribution of the various Police community support initiatives like the Police week of activities, Neighborhood watch groups and the Police Youth Club chapters throughout the nation.
He expounded on the invaluable contributions that these initiatives have made in ensuring that the RSVPF fosters positive relationships with the nation’s communities.
The COP also thanked the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines for ensuring the continued growth and development of the RSVPF as well as putting measures in place to ensure the safety and comfort of Police officers amidst the competing needs of the various ministries.
