Christmas Tips from Ladyville Top Cop

Edward Broaster

The home invasion in Rural Belize has also brought into stark focus the reality of vulnerability in rural areas. Christmas is a time for celebration and giving, but it is also a time for taking, and some criminals are all too happy to take very forcefully. Today Broaster outlined some tips on Christmas security for rural residents.

 

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster, Commander, Eastern Division Rural

“Over the Christmas and we want to encourage the community to keep up the see something, say something and it may just well stop yourself from becoming victim of crime or violence. We have extra patrols out; we have officers doing extra duties to provide safety and security for our residents and their premises during this time of festivity. And, like I said earlier, we are putting notes under your doors to let you know that we’ve been at your premises, checking out in your area if you are not at home. If you are at home, we are talking to you and explaining to you some tips. And if you have not gotten any note under your door and you are not at home during working hours, just please, like I said, be free to call us and let us know. We will be sure that officers patrol your area and do the same thing. We want to create the Whatsapp group for the Rural Eastern Division and the two numbers that you can tap into are 601-3000 and 620-8080. You can also create your own neighbourhood group on Whatsapp and link us in so that when you send a message, your neighbours can get it as well as the police of Rural Eastern Division simultaneously and we will definitely take action into any requests or concerns that you may have.”
