Southside Mom Gets Needed Help from Police

The Police’s Secret Santa was all over the Belize District today. This afternoon he came down to Southside and specifically to Iguana Street, where a mother and step-mother of thirteen was taken to Public Supermarket on Central American Boulevard on the pretext of responding to a “complaint.” However, Dawn Faber was quite happy with the result. She got three hundred dollars’ worth of groceries for her family to help them celebrate the holidays. Regional Commander ACP Chester Williams, backed by fellow regional leaders Edward Broaster, Deziree Phillips and Juanito Cocom, and Faber shared the heart-warming moment with other customers in the store and with News Five.

“We had to find a way to get her to Public’s, and so we had to concoct a story and tell her that there’s a “complaint” made against her, and the person works at Public’s, so we need to bring her here to confront the person. And when we got here, that’s when we broke the news to her that the “complaint” was she was to get three hundred dollars’ worth of groceries to help her over the Christmas period. And I could have seen the joy in her face when that was told to her. We know Christmas is a time that we should share and care and love each other, and I am happy that as a Department we could have reached out to her and see how best we could help her.”


ACP Williams says his men and women will be out delivering Christmas hampers for more needy families in the division on Wednesday.
