Haiti: Police call for psychological attention to officers

Port-au-Prince, Jan 11 (Prensa Latina) The National Union of Haitian Policemen on Thursday called for psychological attention for its officers, the most exposed sector in the struggle against armed groups in the Caribbean country.

According to a statement, the physical, psychological and emotional state of the police officers suffer the impact of the harsh reality of the moment.

In addition to the risks, the situation becomes more untenable when their salaries cannot reach the end of the month like the majority of the population, hence they drop out of the institution.

The union urges high command to investigate into cases of officers in need of mental health care to aid them to continue working to restore peace in the city,” the statement said.

The union also demanded the delivery of adequate and sufficient materials to continue fighting the growing insecurity, and better working conditions for the officers.
