Police get motorcycles for fast patrols

Police patrols in the west and south received a boost today with the handing over of brand new wheels from the Ministry of National Security. The Cayo District received a Mahindra truck and two motorcycles which will serve the twin towns of San Ignacio and Santa Elena. Meanwhile, the Stann Creek Formation also received a new truck along with six motorcycles to be deployed to Dangriga, Pomona, the Valley Community, Hopkins, Independence Area and Bella Vista. O.C.’s Ralph Moody for Cayo and Robert Mariano for Stann Creek were at the Police Headquarters in Belmopan to receive the keys along with outgoing Commissioner of Police David Henderson and the ComPol designate, Allen Whylie. Minister of National Security, John Saldivar, says he expects improved performance in the districts with the help of today’s donation.

“It’s a part of the continuing process of improving the equipment and infrastructure for the Police Department. Today we are handing over two vehicles and ten motorcycles to Dangriga Formation, the San Ignacio Formation; one vehicle for San Ignacio and some of the motorcycles for Dangriga and some of the villages in the Stann Creek District and also for the San Ignacio formation. So this is all part of our effort to improve and to equip the police so that they can better respond to crime prevention and also crime detection. So we believe this will go a long way in assisting the police in these areas to do a better job.”

 

Two motorcycles were also donated to the Belize District for the Ladyville and Hattieville areas.

    More new stuff and they do nothing with them. All the craziness happen right in our country and no one can stop it not even the new stuff. The good belizean people should all rise up against, this war that is happening in our country.

  6. Storm says:

    I had the same impression as Gone Fishing — from where did the money suddenly appear to acquire the new vehicles? If it was a foreign or private donation, that normally would be reported.

    I’m happy to see new equipment to support law enforcement, and I join in the prayer that it will be maintained and used properly. Taxpayers sacrifice to pay for those things, and the public employees, police included, should understand and appreciate that fact. When equipment is allowed to fall apart because of abuse or lack of regular maintenance, it is hard to replace.
