According to UNDP Programme Specialist, Carla Zacapa, Belize is part of a broader regional initiative known as Info Segura which is a form of evidence-based information management.  U.S. AID also partnered with the Ministry of National Security and U.N.D.P. for the donation of the equipment.

“On behalf of the United Nations Development Program, it gives me great pleasure to be with you here today at this ceremony for the handing over of thirty-seven GPS devices to the Ministry of National Security in Belize.  Access to and use of these tools to collect accurate and timely information about citizen security in Belize is a core priority of the United Nations Development Programme supported by the Regional Project Evidence-based Information Management on citizen security in Central America, most commonly known as Info Segura.  UNDP Belize is honored to partner with the Ministry Security and with the United States Agency for International Development as primary donors to support the planning and implementation of this project here in Belize.  The Info Segura project brings together various actors in the justice system to gather, analyze and systematize collection and compilation of national citizen security-related data, including the National Crime and Violence Observatory.  The project also supports Belize’s engagement and participation in other ongoing interventions to strengthen access to crime and justice data platforms and in the larger Caribbean area and in the region.  The initiatives under the Info Segura project are aligned to priorities included in the growth and sustainable development strategy for Belize with special emphasis on two success factors which are enhanced governance and citizen security.”
