Dress decently in shelters – police
THE ROYAL St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF) has issued a release urging persons in shelters to improve their manner of dress.
The police said in a release that they have received “numerous reports from shelter managers at several shelters” about the scanty manner in which some of the female evacuees dress at the shelters.
“ It was also reported that some males and females are not utilizing the temporary baths/showers provided for bathing, but are bathing in the open, almost in the nude”.
In the release, the police apppealed “to the persons who engage in this practice to desist and dress modestly at the shelters.”
It said “there are children and persons of different characters and backgrounds living at these shelters; therefore a modicum of decency should be displayed at all times.
“Let us all work together in the interest of the safety and security of every citizen, resident and visitor”.
The police expressed confidence that “we will get through this difficult period together by each individual playing their part”.
