By BBN Staff: This week, Police South-side Commander, Howell Gillett continued on his rounds with the business community and other members of society.
Gillett met with Michael Shaw, the managing director of Scotiabank Belize Limited to discuss several issues.
Their discussions included the possibility of obtaining concessionary income-based loans for police officers on South-side Belize city, the possibility of paying for a Chaplain to counsel officers in times of need, the possibility of building a barrack room for officers to discourage hitchhiking and have a pool of officers available at any given time.
They also spoke about instituting a gun amnesty with funding from the business community.
Scotiabank has already pledged to donating some new flashlights for the police officers.
