Police Beef Up Presence in Dangriga

Commissioner of Police Chester Williams says that the police will maintain an increased presence in Dangriga.   The Police Department will be carrying out a number of operations in that town, which in recent weeks has been plagued by rivalries.  The commissioner says that he is confident that they will be able to stem the surge in criminal activities in that southern municipality, but they need the public’s cooperation and patience.

“I can assure the people of Dangriga, that just as we did over the Garifuna Settlement Day holiday, we will maintain a strong presence in Dangriga from this week going into next week. I have directed my Commander of Operations Mr. Vidal to coordinate and execute operations in Dangriga to target those persons who we believe are involved in these different activities in Dangriga. So, we do what we can from a police stand point and I remain optimistic with the fact that at the end of this month, recruit squad number ninety four will be departing the national training academy to do the on the job training across the country and Dangriga will receive seventeen of those officers to do on the job training in Dangriga so they will be able to complement the already existing staff in Dangriga so that they can spread out and cover a wider area. With that, we will also be sending in the operational units, the G.S.U., M.I.T. and S.P.U. on a weekly basis to do operations. So, I want to ask the people to be patient with us.”
