Monday, August 11, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: In a rare move, the Police Department has issued a press release seeking to reassure the public after another tough weekend on the City’s streets.
It begins by “expressing deepest condolences to the families and friends grieving the loss of their loved ones as a result of the recent spike of crime and violence in Belize City.”
The Department promises, basically, to do its job – that is, “investigate and prosecute those responsible, for these crimes, to the full extent of the Law.”
It also announces that “with immediate effect, citizens and visitors to Belize City will see an increased presence of Law Enforcement Officers in selective areas of the City. Officers will be overtly patrolling the streets of Belize City and vehicular checkpoints will be conducted at strategic locations across the city in order to stem the violence. Teams of Police officers will be doing house – to – house visits to strengthen police/community relations and have the community more involved in our anti crime fighting efforts. The public is reminded to contact police through the Crimestoppers hotline (922-8477-TIPS) to report crime or any information on a crime, 911 for emergencies, or just visit your nearest police station.”
