By BBN Staff: Where is the most murderous part of Belize?

Data recently released by the Belize Police Department for January to September of this year can provide an indication.

For example, the figures suggest that you are more likely to be killed in the old capital, Belize City and thereafter Belmopan, the new capital.

Looking at murders, Belize City’s south side recorded 24 murders. In second place was Belize City’s northside with 15 murders. Belmopan ranked third with 12 murders.

However, while the chance at being murdered in those areas are relatively high, in other areas of the country there is less chances of being killed.

For example in Caye Caulker, Benque Viejo and Placencia.

For this year, these areas saw zero murders.

These figures when compared to this period last year remain constant for Placencia and Benque Viejo.
