Police Eastern Division Commander honors high-performing officers

Posted: Wednesday, September 7, 2022. 2:49 pm CST.

By Benjamin Flowers: Today, Officer Commanding Police Eastern Division, Assistant Commissioner of Police Howell Gillett, honored nine Belize City-based police officers, for distinguishing themselves in the line of duty.

Gillett held a ceremony to acknowledge the officers, emphasizing that their performance has made a positive contribution to the reduction of crime in the city.

“It is performance like this we want to be emulated by all officers, not only in Belize city but across the country. I could only describe their performance as decisive, a duty of care to the public and bravery, for the most part,” Gillett said. “We are celebrating small victories as they happen. Thank you officers for making our city safer.”

The ceremony is another in a growing list of actions Gillett has taken to improve the quality of life for police officers. In July, he brokered an agreement with San Pedro Junior College (SPJC), securing two-year tuition scholarships for five officers. In March Gillett signed a one-year agreement with Central Drug Store, to allow for police officers to get up to 10 percent discount on over-the-counter and prescription medications.

Gillett stresses that officers who are healthy and feel valued will be more productive officers, which will translate to better law enforcement and a safer Belize.
