By Aaron Humes: The Belize Police Department has hit the streets ahead of the Easter break which begins this week for an annual safety campaign targeting residents.
Last week, officers were handing out pamphlets with safety tips for drivers.
Concerning children, Assistant Superintendent of Police Fitzroy Yearwood advises that minors should not be left alone or unattended, or sent anywhere, especially to waterways and pools, unattended. Ensure that a responsible adult is with them at all times. Drowning is an all-too-common occurrence at this time of year.
Concerning securing your home, he further advised that if you will be away for a lengthy time, it is advisable not to post your exact whereabouts on social media: “We don’t want you to give the thieves that opportunity to have a field day; you go to let’s say, Cancun, for five days; they stay in your house five nights and leave when they know you are coming back, because of your Facebook post or maybe your WhatsApp status. I can’t control how you post your Facebook pictures; but if you know your home will be unattended, I am encouraging you not to post about your [location].”
“The importance of your safety is paramount to our officers and we stress that to them every day,” he reminded as he requested the general public’s cooperation.
