Thursday, November 2, 2006 – The Dennery Community is next in line to receive a new police station, marking the fifth of an overall seven earmarked for the country.

Designed by the architectural firm of Brian Camacho and Associates, the police station will have a new look in a new location. The site which has been chosen for the building is near the Dennery Combined School, along the main road.

Member of Parliament for Dennery South, Honourable Damian Greaves said the re-location has raised some questions, but the hub of activity in the town has been shifting away from the village where the old police station is located.

“And now we have come to the moment when our policemen in Dennery, who have faced many unfavourable conditions will now be housed in proper conditions. I'm guided by the CEO, Mr. Lancelot Arnold who said that the Dennery Police station will be different,” the Dennery South MP said.

Minister for Home Affairs and Internal Security, Senator the Honourable Calixte George, called on police officers to deliver the highest level of performance to the public.

“I do not want to hear any excuses again,” said Senator George. “You now have to perform and you have to perform responsibly. You have to ensure that you respect the citizenry, you have to ensure that when you are investigating matters that you do them thoroughly, you have to ensure that you are embracing the communities in which you work.”

The Dennery Police Station will be financed under arrangements between the Government of Saint Lucia and NIPRO. The station will be constructed by R&F Construction Limited, and it's anticipated that preliminary works will commence from November 2006, to be completed within a year.
