Will Belize send Police officers to Haiti?

Posted: Wednesday, November 1, 2023. 4:45 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: At least 50 members of the Belize Defence Force and Coast Guard will be joining the mission for intervention in Haiti being led by Kenya as confirmed by Foreign Affairs Minister Eamon Courtenay, but a few weeks ago, Police Commissioner Chester Williams indicated that police officers are also interested in joining.

With a representative of the National Police of Haiti in Belize for the General Assembly of Chiefs and Directors of Police of Central America, Mexico, and Colombia which concluded today, the Commissioner said they have had a chance to discuss how Belize, and the wider region, can support the troubled country which is under duress from gang violence and is unable to move forward politically.

According to Williams, “I met with him [on Monday]; we had a welcome cocktail last night. At that event I took the liberty of speaking to him, but may I also say that the representative from Haiti is also a member of the ACCP (Association of Caribbean Commissioners of Police), which I am a member of. So I had met him in May of this year in Trinidad and so we are no strangers to each other. But yes, we did discuss the issue in Haiti and what we want to see as a part of this meeting or this conference is to see how as a region, we can assist Haiti through our commission. So that is going to be a part of our discussion as well.”
