Plagued by crime, the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis yesterday announced the deployment of forces from the Barbados-based Regional Security System (RSS).

In a national address yesterday, the St Kitts Government Information Service (GIS) said that Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris underscored his government’s position in leaving no stone unturned when it comes to the criminal elements that “threaten to derail the country’s advancement, human development and economic progress, a country that is leading the region in its fiscal performance and stability”.The St Kitts GIS said in a release that  RSS forces began arriving in the Federation on October 10th, 2018, and will continue to arrive in sufficient numbers to assist ongoing efforts at ensuring citizen safety and security. RSS members are already deployed throughout the communities with local national security personnel, and their “presence will help local law enforcement to expand the extent of their coverage of the country,” the release added.(stabroeknews)…[+]
