Friday, January 16, 2015. BMG: The partnership between the police and the People’s Coalition of Orange Walk is being renewed in an effort to create a safer environment for residents of the municipality.
On Thursday, police officers and members of the Coalition were beating the pavement meeting and greeting residents of the community, particularly in one of the known hot-spots, that is the stadium area.
According to Bernadette Cornejo of the Orange Walk People’s Coalition, the presences of two high schools in there area presents a challenge with fights and the influence of rival gangs in the area is not contributing to a safe neighborhood.
The meet and greet sessions involving the police and Coalition are designed to improve the community’s confidence in the police and to rely on law enforcement authorities when problems arise.
According to the officer commanding Orange Walk police Dennis Arnold, the plan is to continue the meet and greet sessions on a weekly basis and will also include other areas of the municipality.
