By BBN Staff: The Belize Police Department has issued a public advisory in view of the recent robberies on highways where criminals have been impersonating police officers and setting up check points.
The BPD has informed the public that because of this, every check point manned by the Belize Police Department will clearly display a Police Check Point sign and one police officer at the check point will be dressed in the number one uniform (Khaki shirt and blue trousers). A marked police vehicle will also be present at the check point.
If any member of the public comes across a police check point that does not meet these requirements, they are advised not to stop and proceed to the nearest police station to make a report.
