Corporate Objectives

There is a corporate plan for the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force.   Prior to that there was no Corporate Plan as such, but a structural organisational framework within which the Police Force operated.  The idea of the Police Force being seen as an organisation with a corporate personality is a matter of recent conceptualisation.

The Corporate Plan, which is now to be incorporated in the local Police Force, seeks to address the following areas: -

  1. Reduction of Crime through the encouragement of  Neighbourhood Watch Schemes and youth programmes.
  2. Provision of computer equipment and expertise as well as training in record management and basic immigration services.
  3. Providing training in crime investigation and detection to include crime trends' analysis, photography and fingerprinting and management of major incidents.
  4. Develop a comprehensive programme of training for current members.
