Police Welcome More Help for Region One

Howell Gillett

Consultants Arimany and Claude Magnifico met with the regional commander, Senior Superintendent Howell Gillett, at a breakfast meeting at the Princess Hotel. Having taken command on March nineteenth, Gillett has been actively meeting with interested stakeholders and throwing himself into the battle to regain the hearts and minds of jaded Belize City residents under his command. The senior cop says he welcomes this and other initiative that will take work off the police’s hands.

“Looking at the program of events kids will learn different sporting disciplines at a professional level. There will be coaches who will be trained in Belize, sponsored by the I.D.B., and these coaches will train young people on our side of the City to be involved, and some of them, as is the case of Honduras and Guatemala, have moved on to professional levels.  But it shows that based on the surveys that have been done in those countries, it shows that violence could be reduced or prevented through the use of sports, so we are very pleased for this. It is some of what we are doing, but at a higher level, and we welcome this. And some of the initiatives that will be implemented, for sure, will help, because they will be working primarily in our area and it will be sustained set of activities; it won’t be a one-off thing, like we’ve seen in the past with some of the programs that have started and did not continue; there’s no longevity to it.”
