The Commissioner of the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force – RSVGPF said one of the successes for the police force this year was their action to get thirty-five (35) firearms and four hundred and seven (407) rounds of ammunition off the street.

He sais this resulted in the arrest of fifteen (15) persons for firearm related offenses.

Commissioner John made the revelation through his 2022 Christmas message.

Commissioner John, however, highlighted several areas in which the police have fallen short. 

Commissioner John said there are too many instances of reports of unprofessional conduct by police officers. 

He said these range from the manner in which some police officers approach civilians to alleged unlawful physical assaults. There have also been complaints of late and sometimes no responses by police officers to reports from the public.

He urged all officers to continue to live up to their mandate to serve and protect the public.
