By BBN Staff: In the aftermath of the now-viral video showing police forcefully detaining a minor that had escaped from a youth hostel, the Ministry of Human Development’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Judith Alpuche, says that her ministry supports the idea of the police getting more training to deal with that type of scenario.
Alpuche, noting that various entities such as the National Committee for Families and Children and even Police Commissioner Chester Williams has spoken publicly about the need for more training, says that the instant case was a very complexed situation.
“We certainly would support assisting the police with more training,” Alpuche said. “These are difficult situations that we really need to handle in ways that support the dignity of everyone involved.”
The video has generated massive public response from people believing that the female minor was victimized, as well as others defending the police, saying that the officers did the job they were sent to do.
There has been no official word on what form the additional training would take or how it would be administered. Breaking Belize News will continue to update this national issue as more information becomes available.
