By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On December 21, 2022, Prime Minister John Briceño handed over 10 Troop Lifting Vehicles to the Ministry of National Defence and Border Security.

The vehicles were obtained through the Belize Integral Security Programme (BISP), a BZ$60-million-project funded by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI), which is intended to strengthen the capacities of the Belize Defence Force (BDF) to provide increased security for the citizens of Belize.

Through the programme, Fairweather Camp in Punta Gorda will benefit from a well-equipped Medical Center, and Camp Belizario in the Cayo District will benefit from the construction of a battalion headquarters.

The BDF will also benefit from a new kitchen with state-of-the-art industrial equipment, dining areas, cold storage, pantries, and a generator to ensure functionality in times of emergencies such as hurricanes. The kitchen will also be constructed to be utilized as a hurricane shelter, ensuring that the troops are safe during and able to quickly mobilize after a storm.

Two dormitories will also be built to provide the much-needed sleeping quarters for the troops. The dorms will be equipped with beds, washing stations and restrooms. 

The Government of Belize says that the construction of the facilities is expected to commence within the first quarter of 2023.

Prime Minister Briceño said that the works will continue to ensure citizen security at its utmost best.
