The Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Auxiliary Police Force over the years has proven itself to be a tremendous asset in aiding to maintain law and order throughout St. Vincent and the Grenadines. As part of this essential establishment, are officers who have devoted their time and efforts in ensuring that their duties are performed above reproach. One such officer is Auxiliary Sergeant Ms. Yvette Thomas who have celebrated 40 years of service to St. Vincent and the Grenadines on 16.09.2020.

Enlisted into the auxiliary force on 16.09.1980, Auxiliary Sergeant Thomas was amongst the first female officers to have taken the leap to be enlisted within Auxiliary Service. Over the years, she has been stationed at various locations throughout the country to perform duties and is now currently assigned to the Kingstown Town Board as head of security; a position she has held for the past 20 years.

Auxiliary Sergeant Thomas has attended and participated in almost every Independence Parade since her enlistment. She also acted as Guard Commander on the parade on numerous occasions.

The long- serving Auxiliary Sergeant explained that her experience over the years has been challenging and still continues to be so even today. However, she stated that she is more than willing to meet these challenges head on, as she continues to abide by and uphold the regulations that governs her duties.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Colin John, Commander of the Auxiliary Force, Mr. Michael Charles and the rank and file members of both the RSVGPF and the Auxiliary Police Force convey congratulations to Auxiliary Sergeant Yvette Thomas on this momentous achievement.
