Top Cop Says Paperwork Has Been Drafted for Entire South Side

Chester Williams

With a state of emergency in effect for two south side neighborhoods, are other Belize City gangs laying low or is there potential for a flare up elsewhere?  When asked that question at today’s press conference, Deputy ComPol Williams revealed that similar documents have been drafted for the entire south side of the Old Capital and, should push come to shove, it’s simply a stroke of the Governor General’s pen to bring them into force.



“Mr. Williams, in regards to a comment that was made at the last press briefing, there was reference made to other areas of Belize City which have been boiling over in terms of gang activity.  Are there any provisions which are made, because I wondered at the begin when you focus on these areas, if that wouldn’t leave the other areas free to move and act out as they will, you know.  Is there any provision that the state of emergency can be expanded to other areas if other gangs…”


Chester Williams, Deputy Commissioner (Operations)

“You think it will make them act out as they want to?  I can tell you that we already have documents drafted for the entire south side of Belize City, but we only went after these two for now because those were the two that were in this war tit for tat and it was unbearable.  If the other groups would want to behave in such a way, then we know what to do.  Like I said, the documents are already drafted, it’s just a matter for the GG’s signature.  So it is up to them.  How we progress from will be determined by them.  If they keep their area calm they have nothing to fear, but if they want to be out there perpetrating gang activities then by all means then we would have to draw a bone as well.”

    Seems you are making the gang run there area. As soon as you see trouble and there are no policies in place, you need to implement one.
