Government of Belize Press Release

The Ministry of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries is deeply concerned about the recent incident involving Corporal Durham Dawson and a woman police officer who was a victim of sexual assault.

In response to this reprehensible act, swift and decisive action has been taken. Corporal Durham Dawson has been brought before the courts and charged with sexual assault and harm, as well as been placed on interdiction and relieved of all duties pending further investigation.

The Ministry is treating this matter with the utmost severity it deserves. We are committed to ensuring justice is served and that the victim will receive the necessary support and care during this difficult time.

Moreover, the Ministry acknowledges the need for profound cultural change within our law enforcement department. We are actively working towards fostering a culture of respect, dignity, and accountability within the ranks. We will closely monitor all situations to ensure that such incidents are eradicated from our institutions entirely.

As we commemorate Women’s Month, the Ministry highlights the importance of respecting and honouring all women, especially within the ranks of the Belize Police Department and the staff of the Ministry of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to all women.

The Ministry remains steadfast in its commitment to upholding the safety, rights, and dignity of all individuals. We will continue to work tirelessly towards creating a safer and more equitable environment for everyone.
