Girl Power! Belize Police shatters records with women officers

Posted: Saturday, April 20, 2024. 4:02 am CST.

By Horace Palacio: History was made on Friday as Belize graduated its largest-ever police recruit class. Squad 97 boasts a record-breaking 57 women officers, exceeding the United Nations’ 20% standard for female representation within law enforcement.

Minister of Home Affairs Kareem Musa underscored the significance of this achievement: “You make history today because you are members of the largest recruit squad in Belizean history. Today we are honored to welcome a cadre of 231 police officers. More significant than that, Squad 97 has proven to be a squad of firsts with an unprecedented 57 of its trainees being women.”

The new officers face an immediate challenge, heading to areas experiencing unrest and crime concerns. The Minister emphasized their core purpose: “Your job is the business of security, but it only becomes meaningful when people feel safe. You must remember that you are professionals… the police exist to work in partnership with the community for a safer Belize.”

Breaking Belize News wishes these dedicated officers all the best as they embark on this vital career serving their communities.
