By Aaron Humes: Is “CSI Belize” finally here?
Promised so long ago, a three-quarter million-dollar project will finally bring the expansion of infrastructure and technical training within the National Forensic Science Service (NFSS), leading to Belize’s international accreditation, by July 2022.
A memorandum of understanding was signed last week for a Forensic Crime Scene Office Project, part of the Justice Sector Reform/Forensics: Paving the Path to International Accreditation and International Association for Identification (the largest forensics certification organization in the world) Certification program.
In addition to the main office next to Price Barracks in Ladyville and the Scenes of Crime office in Belize City, new spaces will be constructed in Belmopan, Dangriga and Ladyville.
Director Gian Cho stated, “This project will complement recent investments made by the Government of Belize to improve office space and technical workstations for the Scenes of Crime Main Office in Belize City. These upgrades will also allow for the addition of certified crime scenes technicians in the near future.”
U.S. Embassy International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Coordinator Mary Walz emphasized, “The construction and installation of these three office spaces under the Forensic Crime Scene Office Project will immediately improve the working environments for crime scenes technicians in key locations across Belize. This, in turn, will enhance the security and integrity of evidence collected from crime scenes in locations across the country. It’s all about making sure the people are served through justice being served.”
