By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Government of Belize (GOB) has equipped the First Responders and Highway Patrol’s vehicle fleet with GPS tracking devices and is training the staff on how to use the devices.
“Today, the Ministry of Economic Development, through the Second Road Safety Project, partnered with Traksolutions Belize Ltd. to train municipal bodies and the Department of Transport on the usage of GPS tracking devices,” said the GOB Press Office in a statement.
“The purpose of the training is to familiarise users with the capabilities and management of this dynamic device that will allow them to gather sensitive data.”
The Press Office said the six ambulances (five for the Ministry of Health & Wellness and one for BERT), six highway patrol vehicles (all for the Department of Transport), 18 motorcycles (two for each municipality), and two project vehicles purchased in 2020 through the Second Road Safety Project with financing from the Caribbean Development Bank for BZ$4,087,422.12 have all been equipped with GPS tracking devices. 
“Through continued support to the beneficiaries of these vehicles, the Second Road Safety Project entered into a contractual agreement for BZ$38,220.00 with Traksolutions Belize Ltd. to install GPS tracking devices in these vehicles and to allocate servicing fees for 24 months,” said the Press Office.
Dr. Osmond Martinez, CEO of the Ministry of Economic Development, said the GPS tracking devices will not only track the location of the vehicles in real-time but will also offer data collection and generate reports on the activities, usage, and maintenance using web-based software.
“This software can also generate reports on the vehicle speed, stop duration, engine running time, and fuel consumption, which will allow heads of department to ensure the efficient and effective use of the vehicles,” said the statement.
