RGPF expresses concern of students loitering and engaging in Drugs and Sexual Act

  • Written by  The Grenada Informer

The Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) is calling for the help of parents and others in society in dealing with the problem which it says is of great concern.

During a media briefing concern was raised about the increase in drug use among students, who loiter around the town of St. George’s after school. “We want to make an appeal to parents, schools and children in particular. We are seeing over the years, and it is becoming a regular issue and challenging the resources of the RGPF. Children congregate at the bus terminus and the Bruce Street Mall on a Friday afternoon and basically engage in the use of alcohol and other behaviours,” said Superintendent Frank Philbert, Head of the Traffic Department.

Superintendent Philbert said that as a Force they are asking those parents and school to speak to their children as it relates to the loitering. “We would like children, when they finish school, to go home. The incidents of misbehaviour and idleness that are seen out there, I don’t think that any parent will feel comfortable to have their children liming by the road on a Friday afternoon.” He added that it is creating a problem and the Force sees it as a concern and “we want to appeal to you the parents and the general public to become you brother’s keeper. We can all join together as a society and a State to see if we can remedy that problem”. He said that the police are doing their best but they expect a kind of willingness from the students and parental training and the obedience of these children. “From school you board that bus and go home; there is no reason or need for what we can see to be just hanging around.” 

Head of the Criminal Investigation Department, Supt. Trevor Modeste, said that the problem goes beyond the use of drugs, as students also engage in sexual acts. “What is actually occurring there is an increase of drug use among students at the back of the Bus Terminus, boys as well as girls, and an increase in sexual activities.” The RGPF said that it will continue in its effort to get the students on the buses but suggested that adults witnessing wrongdoing among the students must speak to them about the repercussions of their actions.
