GPS to Locate Crime Hotspots?

The Ministry of National Security, through the Belize Crime Observatory, received a donation of GPS equipment earlier today from the United Nations Development Programme.  The handing over of thirty-seven devices took place this morning and there to receive them was Chief Executive Officer George Lovell.  The donation succeeds a local training session on the use of global positioning systems.

(Ret.) Col. George Lovell, C.E.O., Ministry of National Security

“Just last month we had some training of our analysts so that they’ll be able to utilize the product that is currently being handed over, the GPS and also for them to provide us with a better product in terms of data analysis and data that is being provided on the Belize Crime Observatory.  We are extremely grateful as a ministry for what these GPS will bring to the capacity building of our analysts.  We’ll be able to better report on incidents as they occur and to be able to have these incidents cited at the exact location within a particular area of where it occurs.  This is absolutely necessary so that the kind of information that will come out of the Crime Observatory is one that we are confident will be accurate and will be able to provide its users with information that they can all rely on.”
