Police Strike a POSE over Weekend

A countrywide law enforcement operation which began at the stroke of twelve last Wednesday morning has resulted in a number of seizures, including contraband alcohol, illegally harvested seafood, firearms and ammunition, as well as illegal immigrants.  POSE, short for Police Operations Simultaneous Everywhere, concluded over the weekend, but not before a significant haul on the part of the Belize Police Department.

ACP Edward Broaster, Commander of Operations, Police Department

“I want to apologize to the Belizean citizenry who may have gotten caught up in the police operation, POSE, Police Operation Simultaneous Everywhere, that occurred at midnight Wednesday night and culminated at midnight Saturday.  That operation was launched countrywide and we had officers directing checkpoints countrywide, raids conducted and vehicles checked.  The result of that operation was successful I might add.  We’ve managed to seize over forty-two pounds of marijuana countrywide.  We’ve managed to seize two hundred and two rounds of ammunition.  We’ve also managed to seize six firearms, arrested nineteen immigrants, six of which were female.  We’ve also searched two thousand, eight hundred and sixty-four vehicles where a hundred and eighty-four were issued citations.  One person was arrested for bribery in Orange Walk. If you have been wronged by the police or treated unprofessionally, we encourage you to please kindly report it, as that is not our intention to have the citizenry being treated unprofessionally.”
