M&C Home Depot Supports the Refurbishment of The Royal St. Lucia Police Force’s Central Police Station.
M&C Home Depot along with other corporations offered much needed support of the refurbishment efforts for the Central Police Station on Bridge St, Castries. On 4th September, The Royal St. Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) hosted a ceremony to re-commission its Central Police Station which was closed about three years ago due to mould infestation and other problems and used the opportunity to thank the officers and corporate donor without who the project would not be possible.
“We are celebrating the determination of officers and the tremendous support of corporate St. Lucia,” Police Commissioner Vernon Francois said. Acting Superintendent Emmanuel Joseph said officers formed a committee called the Central Development Committee to oversee the refurbishment of the abandoned building, which was used decades ago by the Traffic Department and most recently by Central Station. “Our emphasis on this particular undertaking stems from our understanding of its historical significance both to law enforcement and to the general public,” Joseph said. Deputy Commissioner Errol Alexander told the gathering that the restoration of the building represents a major step towards fulfilling the policing needs in Castries.
Plaques of appreciation were presented to all sponsors for their contribution followed by the official ribbon-cutting to commission the building. M&C Home Depot provided all the material required to completely rewire the entire building. Mr. Kernan Quinlan Operations Manager of M&C Home Depot stated that “As the leading Hardware Store in St. Lucia it was M&C Home Depot’s pleasure to support this initiative thereby ensuring that the community of Castries has re-gained its Central Police Station and the officers have a safe environment in which to work.”
