The Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force says that in its quest to combat sexual offences in SVG, it has put together a team of detectives dedicated to investigating sexual crimes such as rape and unlawful sexual intercourse with minors.

The force said that the goal of the Sexual Offences Unit (SOU) is to provide the best police and social services available to victims of sexual crimes.

The unit seeks to accomplish this task by conducting thorough and detailed investigations of all sexual offences reported to the unit, the Police Public Relations Department said on Tuesday.

Further, in keeping up-to-date with modern trends, the Police Force has updated its national identification card that is used by its members.

The Sexual Offences Unit and the new police identification card will be launched at a ceremony at Police Headquarters tomorrow, Wednesday.

  1. What will happen if someone goes to them and says the comrade raped me? Not that anyone will I suppose, just asking a hypothetical question.

    Because the previous police record and behaviour in such circumstances have been tested before and they failed abysmally.

  2. What will happen if someone goes to them and says the Police Chief has been pestering me sexually? That’s not a hypothetical question.

  3. I hope there wouldn’t be any nolle prosecuting in the unit. Let the the unit’s investigators present whatever evidence they accumulate in any matter that is reported to unit to the court which in turn will weigh such evidence and pass the appropriate verdict and sentence respectively.
