The two guest speakers at the launch were Chief Executive Officer of Home Affairs, Colonel George Lovell and Assistant Commissioner of Police, Edward Broaster.
Chair of the Board, Lauren Reardon Smith, in her remarks commented that she would like to see the program grow with more involvement from the public using the free service, and more collaboration with business establishment as donors to the program, particularly to fund the outreach programs on awareness campaigns.
The new Crime Stoppers Police Coordinator was introduced to the public. He is Assistant Commissioner of Police, Noel Leal.
The Crime Stoppers Board says that it is excited to have him on board and look forward to a successful year with him.
Among those in attendance were members of the Diplomatic Core, Belize Police Department, Representatives and Heads of local Banks, Presidents of the Rotary Clubs, Representatives from Tourism sector, Sponsors of Crime Stoppers Belize, and the media.
Crime Stoppers Belize is a not for profit organization with a totally volunteer board consisting of members from a wide cross-segment of the Belizean public.
The program is designed to reduce crime by partnering with the community, the media, the local police and other law enforcement agencies.
The media reports the crime, the community identifies the criminal(s) who’ve committed the crime and provides information to Crime Stoppers anonymously, and the police acts upon the information provided by arresting and charging the criminals.
When the criminals are arrested, they are effectively removed from the community hence reducing crime in the area. Crime can only be combated when everyone gets involved.
It is a community-based program designed to help law enforcement solve crime by setting up systems which allows the public to report tips anonymously by phone and now by electronic means and receive rewards for information that leads directly to the arrest and charge of a suspect for a crime. In Belize, the anonymous TIPS hotline is 922 to report crime-related information.
Tipsters may become eligible for rewards of up to $2,000.
Crime Stoppers Belize was formed as part of the Rotary Club of Belize Centennial Project in 2004.
It functions today with assistance from donors and patrons.
Crime Stoppers Belize thanks the Government of Belize, their sponsors and donors who have made their organization a success in the past and look forward to continued collaboration over the coming years.
