Elodio Aragon Jr.

Just now you heard Minister of Police Aragon speak on the short term methods they are implementing to cut the sharp increase in killings since the start of the New Year. He told us that his Ministry has undertaken a comprehensive plan which will be a national crime strategy. Aragon said that the plan is expected to be rolled out sometime this year but that in the next month or two the public will get more details.


Elodio Aragon Jr., Minister of Police

“We have to look at the approaches that have been taken. What are the things that are working and what are the things that are not working and look at what we can do to impact crime in Belize. And that is why I think that it is something that needs to be really studied and that is why a comprehensive crime strategy for Belize is being looked at, at this time not only for the next few months but for the long haul. And these are the things kind of things that we are doing. I know that we are getting good support –from CABEI in the very near future – financial resources that will be able to give the department that push towards new technologies, to look at new strategies that we would like to implement in the very near future and I am looking at 2017 as the year for the Police Department to really step things up. And the Prime Minister had also mentioned that he will be giving a lot of support to the Police Department this year. So, with all of that and looking at the new crime strategy that we will be unveiling soon, we look towards that to have the impact that we need.”
