By BBN Staff: The Belize Police Department has begun special operations to address violent crimes this Independence Day, following a surge of such crimes over the past weekend.

There were three shootings and a stabbing over the weekend, and Director of Communications for the Office of the Commissioner of Police, Assistant Superintendent of Police, Fitzroy Yearwood said that key areas in Belize City are being looked at for additional deployment of law enforcement personnel.

“We have stepped up our patrol presence in some of these troubled areas, not saying we are leaving the rest of the city or the country unattended, but we must take the necessary precautions,” Yearwood said.

He stressed that the department understands the toll that constant shootings and murders are having on the lives of the public and assured that officers are doing their best to address the issue.

The weekend violence has claimed the life of a 17-year-old minor and left a man critical in the hospital with a gunshot wound to the face.
