By Horace Palacio: During his New Year’s address, Prime Minister John Briceno revealed a notable achievement for Belize in 2023: a significant reduction in violent crimes and murders across the country. This development represents a pivotal moment in the nation’s ongoing efforts to bolster public safety and security.

“2023 brought many achievements for Belizeans, but perhaps our foremost was the dramatic reduction in violent crime and murders, with a decrease of 19% over the previous year,” stated Prime Minister Briceno. He expressed his gratitude towards the Belize Police Department, the Belize Coast Guard, and the Belize Defense Force for their unwavering commitment to public safety.

The Prime Minister highlighted the crucial role played by these security forces, especially during the holiday season, in maintaining law and order. He commended the leadership of the Commandant, Commissioner, and Admiral for their consistent and effective approach to law enforcement.

As Belize moves into 2024, the government aims to build on this progress, ensuring that public safety remains a key focus of its policy and action.
