Celebrating the Work of Law Enforcement with a Basketball Game Vs the Press

The Belize Police Department is getting ready to observe Police Week. The week of activities starts on Sunday June eighteenth and ends on the twenty-fourth. Police officers will engage in a number of activities within the Department and in the community, including a church service and awards ceremony. Also as a part of the Police Week, some of the lawmen and women will take on the media for a friendly basketball game. ACP Chester Williams shares more on what the cops will be doing next week.

“As a part of Police Week, we will commence the week with a Church Service at St Martin’s De Porres Parish where over four hundred police officers are expected to attended, including the Commissioner of Police as well as the other Senior Officers from Belmopan. And after Sunday we have activities on Monday where the Police will be going on different talk shows to discuss about the week itself and talk about some of the salient things within Police week. Then we have the exhibition on Tuesday and that will be somewhere off Antelope Street Extension where over twenty-six different organizations have pledged to participate in the exhibition, including the Police, of course, and we are asking the public to come out on that day because we are sure there will be good things on exhibition or things that will assist the public. Then we have clean-up day on Wednesday. We have our medal awards ceremony on Thursday and then on Friday we have sporting activities. Friday will be an interesting day because Friday is the day that the Police team get to play the media in a basketball match and I have heard some talking from corners of the media that they will not be available on Friday, but let me make it loud and clear. Work is no excuse. We want the media to come out and if they do not show up, it simply means they are afraid of the police and they have lost by default.”


The week will culminate on twenty-fourth with a parade through principal streets in the city.
