Reports of allegations of abuse and misbehavior by
police officers towards a 10-year-old minor have been drawn to the attention of the
Acting Commissioner of Police, Mr. Enville Williams, and other senior-ranking members
of the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF). The officers
implicated in the allegation were paraded before the Acting Commissioner of Police
on the (29.01.24) at the Office of the Commissioner of Police, Police
Headquarters in Kingstown.
Consequently, an immediate investigation into the matter has been launched, and the
appropriate action will be taken upon completion of the said investigation. A senior
police officer attached to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) – South Central
Division was assigned to conduct the investigation.
The public is asked to bear with the police as we probe this matter. While the
allegations are painful to listen to, we must strive to be fair to all parties involved. We,
however, wish to reiterate that the police force is an organization that does not operate
outside of the laws of St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) and no officer will be
tolerated if he or she chooses to do so. Police Abuse and allegations of police abuse
are not policies of the RSVGPF. Any police officer who is found culpable for such
allegations will be dealt with in accordance with the law.
The RSVGPF will make further updates on the investigation and actions to be taken
shortly. Once again, we thank our citizens for continuing to work with RSVGPF to keep
our nation safe.
Anyone with information that can assist the investigation is encouraged to contact the
