U.S. delivers PPEs and off-road vehicles to Police Department

Posted: Thursday, August 26, 2021. 7:16 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Belize Police Department got on Wednesday a supply of personal protective equipment (PPEs) and three off-road terrain vehicles valued at US$120,000 from the United States Embassy in Belize through the U.S. Government’s Central America Regional Security Initiative (CARSI).

The PPE is to supplement current supply and ensure that Belizean police personnel remains protected in their high-risk roles as frontline workers.

The vehicles – two Hisun Strike 900 Utility Terrain Vehicles and one Hisun 550 Forge All-Terrain Vehicle – will be used for the Department’s rapid response efforts in remote areas over rough terrain.

Acting Deputy Chief of Mission Andie de Arment handed over to Commissioner of Police Chester Williams, watched on by Minister of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries Kareem Musa and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Arthurs. The Commissioner hailed the donation as representative of Washington’s continued support and cooperation with Belize and commitment to citizen security here.

Since 2008, the United States is proud to have contributed over US$43.7 million in CARSI funding to Belize. The United States remains committed to working in partnership alongside Belize to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and to further strengthening our countries’ deep ties.
