By Aaron Humes: Today’s Police Department Commanders’ Conference with new Minister of Home Affairs, Kareem Musa, originally set to be held in-person at the Police Training Academy, Belmopan, will instead be held remotely.
The over 50 senior officers had initially planned to meet Minister Musa in person and be able to brief him about the state of their respective commands, according to Commissioner of Police Chester Williams.
This week, Williams had insisted that the Police Department would not fall afoul of workplace regulations tied to COVID-19, which allowed more than 10 persons to gather strictly for work purposes. Social distancing and mask-wearing would of course have been enforced.
However, it appears he has thought better of it and substituted video conferencing in its place.
We should note that the Police are one of the few departments not to host regular video conferencing for meetings with the press, requiring media houses to travel frequently to Belmopan at the start of the week for briefings and also holding briefings in person in Belize City. However, it is not clear why they have seemingly made zero effort to adjust its policies to facilitate virtual press briefings as most other ministries, departments, and businesses have been made to do.
