Her ex, a cop, won’t stop harassing her

Crystal Allen

A Belize City mother came to us in December 2011, desperately seeking assistance because her ex-boyfriend, a senior police officer, had been harassing her since they broke up. Following that story, a restraining order granted to Crystal Allen was amended from two feet to a hundred feet of protection. But she claims that hasn’t stopped the stalking; in fact, Allen says it has gotten worse. More recently, she had to call the cops because her ex was following her while she drove in the city. Allen came back to News Five with the hopes that her story might catch the attention of higher authorities who may be able to help her.

 

Crystal Allen, Alleges Harassment by Senior Police Officer

“It has gotten worse. I have lost confidence in the Police Department. This is a senior officer I am complaining about. I would go and make statements and he would go behind and basically have access to my statements. And I know people are going behind my back and telling him my statements. So there’s no confidentiality in the Police Department. There was an incident on the fifteenth of February where this person who has allegedly killed somebody was following me. I had called police because of the relationship he has with the person I have this protection order against and police pulled over the vehicle. At the point when I walked up to the vehicle I saw that the person I have this protection order against was in the back of the vehicle sitting down. The vehicle was following me and I went to make a complaint about it. I check up the stats on it and they said the file is at the D.P.P. and nothing happened since. He said in court if another incident happened like that—for example because the police pulled them over—somebody will get shot. Nobody didn’t tell him about his statement. So at this point I’m lost to say well I have a protection order and if I call police then, for him to say that statement, well where’s my protection?”

“So right now you are in the middle of a custody battle right?”

“It’s funny because he varied the order from an order that was made in 2010. I went to states for two weeks and he maliciously dragged me to family court for full custody under no grounds. He’s basically saying that I neglected my baby but I left the baby with my mom and paid my mom weekly for staying with the child. So the order was made that he could have access to her on his day off.  You have a man here that is abusing the system because he has rights to my child and that doesn’t make it fair. And all of this, I don’t know if it’s because of his position but it needs to stop. It needs to stop and I need to call it out and bring it to everybody’s attention what’s going on.”

 

Allen says she had made a complaint to the Ombudsman, but soon after that her contract was not renewed so Allen has not had a follow up.

  2. another friend (not miss allen) says:

    I think most of the comments missed the real issue at hand. Every man is his own master and if Miss Allen chooses to sleep with every single man in the country that is her perrogative. However, the officer SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO HARRASS HER OR TO USE THE BELIZE POLICE DEPARTMENT IN AIDING HIS EFFORTS TO DO SO. The stories about this officer is true. And, for the record, their relationship had already ended when the incident happened at Bacab. It doesn’t matter what she does with herself, she should be protected jus tlike any other woman who, yes, slept with or married a crazy man.
