C.E.O. George Lovell Addresses Police Plan of Action for Eastern Division

George Lovell

While the Minister of National Security roundly criticized the media for purportedly exaggerating murder statistics for 2015, C.E.O. George Lovell told News Five that Eastern Division of the Police Department will be executing a plan that will see additional patrols and direct supervision of the boots on the ground.  Despite not being able to divulge details of the new offensive, Lovell says he is confident that the crime situation in Belize City and San Pedro will be dealt with efficiently.


Ret. Col. George Lovell, C.E.O., Ministry of National Security

“We have an increase in the amount of activities that we have seen, especially in Belize City and in San Pedro which comes under the responsibility of O.C. Eastern Division.  She had put together a plan to address it which we are quite confident that that plan will see an about turn in the amount of crime and violence that we are seeing.  One of the things that plagues us is that obviously our people are most concerned about is the amount of homicides that we have been seeing.  But when you examine the other major crimes, you will note that there is, with the exception, I think, of burglary, there is a drastic reduction in all the major crimes when you compare them to last year and even the year before.  So we are doing, and it’s difficult for us to say we are doing well in terms of those other major crimes because one crime is one crime too much.  So the plan that we have at Eastern Division we will hopefully see a decline in the amount of homicides and we will also see, hopefully, a decline in some of those other major crimes which we believe are a bit too high at this stage.”

    You all have been saying the same thing for years now and every time you say it things get worse instead of getting better you are impotent on crime impotent.
