Lionel Moore and a few other Gazetted Officers.
Commenting on their decisions to enter the Police Service, the new recruits collectively stated, “we want to make a difference in our communities and serve our Federation, St. Kitts and Nevis.”
Force Personnel Officer, Mr. Clifford Govia reminded the new recruits that they are now role models in their communities. He added, “I also encourage you to embrace the three “F’s” in your service, Be Firm, Be Fair and Be Friendly. Govia also thanked them for selecting to serve our Federation.
Commissioner(Ag) Stafford Liburd in speaking to the recruits commended them on their decision to enlist in the Police Service. He said, “this is a noble profession,” and “I am heartened to see that all three of our recruits are from areas that are a concern with regards to crime.
