National Community Policing Unit hosts movie night for children in Belize City

Posted: Saturday, February 24, 2024. 11:14 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Last night, the National Community Policing Unit hosted a movie night for over 100 children from several targeted communities within Belize City.

This effort was made possible through partnership with Nexgen Tv and Internet. 

Commander of Community Policing Howell Gillett explained that the movie night is a great initiative to promote positive community relationships such as engaging in recreational activity.

“Officers will be humanizing their role, breaking down stereotypes and building trust. Movie nights provide a safe space for children to interact with law enforcement in a non-threatening environment, helping overcome fear and mistrust.

This initiative promotes understanding, empathy, and the idea that officers are approachable allies. Additionally, it offers at-risk youth a positive outlet, diverting them from potential negative influences. Ultimately, these events contribute to community-building, reinforcing the notion that law enforcement is dedicated to the well-being and inclusivity of all citizens,” Gillett said.

The Commander of Community Policing said that more activities are planned for around Belize City and across the country.
