The Hon Minister for Justice, Immigration and National Security, Rayburn Blackmoore has voiced his support to police officers who perform their duties regardless of political affiliation.

The Hon Minister made the remark during his contribution to the debate of the supplementary estimates this week at Parliament.

He gave his support to officers who perform their duties regardless of political affiliation.

“The majority of police officers understand and appreciate the full extent of the oath they have taken to serve this wonderful country; and the majority of the police officers in this beautiful country know that the Dominica Labour Party, under the leadership of the Prime Minister, has done well for the Dominica Police Force.”

“Nowhere in this oath has said that I will serve the Dominica Labour Party or the United Workers Party; a police officer serves the people of Dominica, the country of Dominica; and when we go to bed, we have to have the assurance that the police have our backs m. speaker, and that’s the bottom line.”

“Any attempts therefore that can be construed as an attempt to buy into the rhetoric of any political party, cannot be serving the best interest of the people of this beautiful country,” the Justice minister said.

Hon Blackmoore proudly stated Government’s work on behalf of the Dominica Police Force. “No other Prime Minister, no other administration has done more for the Dominica Police Force than the Dominica Labour Party; and among the out stations benefitting from that procurement was the Marigot police station.”

The Dominica Police Force received $986,000 to facilitate the purchase of three vehicles.
