Police Meet & Greet in the Martin’s

Chester Williams

Today, the Police continued their meet and greet efforts, just one of several initiatives which they say are reaping real benefits. We caught up with officers speaking to residents on Oleander Street just off Mahogany Street. It’s an area controlled by the PIV gang, but Eastern Division South Commander Chester Williams says the Police are taking back control.

“It is a PIV area, it is known as Banks’ area, but I want it to be made clear that every area in Belize City is the Police area now. We are no longer tolerating any turf per se but we try to see how best we can work with the different people to see how best we can have some semblance of peace in the community, so what we are doing again is to reach out to the community members and get their concerns from them. We are getting our report card. This is our second trip in the martin’s area. When we came before complaints were made to us about the Police attitude and behaviour. We have dealt with those complaints and we are now coming back to see if those complaints persist, and in that same process we are again getting their views and ideas and see how best they can assist us with information to enable us to better Police their area.”
