‘Community policing efforts will continue despite increased law enforcement,’ says Police Eastern Division Commander

By Benjamin Flowers: There were several murders in the Belize District over the weekend, signaling a need for greater police intervention, but while that intervention is being done, Assistant Commissioner of Police Howell Gillett says that community policing initiatives will still continue.

Gillett told our newsroom today that apart from the Belize City murders of Mark Lord and John King, there was also a murder reported in Mahogany Heights, which has police focusing on solving the cases and making arrests.

“We have to be in suppression mode. The other long-term plans have to be on hold a bit because after a shooting there is a feud building up,” Gillett said. “We will have to make arrests but while we are making arrests the Leadership Intervention Unit (LIU) and the Behaviour Modification Unit will continue to work with the feuding factions. But we will have to apply the law on those who are hell-bent on remaining criminals.”

Gillett recently concluded an activity in the Mayflower Street area of Belize City, where personnel from the British Army Royal Engineers installed a basketball hoop and gave gifts to the children in the area.

He noted that the team is only in Belize on a three-month rotation, but they have pledged that the next team will partner with police to make a similar donation when they arrive.
