Wednesday 4 May 2011  The Ministry of Home Affairs and National Security has hailed the 2011 Protective Services Football Fiesta a resounding success.


The activity which was held as part of Labour Day celebrations on Monday May 2 received widespread participation from the men and women who put their lives on the line to secure Saint Lucia on a daily basis.


Home Affairs and National Security Minister, Senator Guy Mayers, says the activity met its objective, which is to foster greater co-operation amongst the members of the Protective Services as persons fighting for a common cause.


“The fiesta is a means of having some stress release for our protective services and a means of building camaraderie among members of the protective services because after all, these men and women spend most of their time in their uniforms working hard to secure Saint Lucia and we felt it was appropriate that we should use sport to bring them together.”


The fiesta which was held under the banner of fun, friendly rivalry, and unity also presented the officers an opportunity to bond and socialise with the families as well as members of the public in fun games.


Deputy Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs and National Security Fortuna Belrose, says such activities are very important as members of the security and protective services strive to execute their mandate to secure Saint Lucia


“Whoever is in the office of the Ministry of Home Affairs and National Security should ensure that these activities continue for the members of the protective services because it's not only about them  giving service to the country but its also important for them to interact and share their experiences and learn from each other; it's something that we welcome and we hope to continue within the Ministry of Home Affairs and National Security.”


The Minister’s trophy and a five-thousand dollar cash prize was won the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force-RSLPF. The Saint Lucia Fire Service placed second .


Other participating teams included the Customs and Excise Department,  the Bordelais Correctional Facility, Private Security firms and the Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority.
