Alejandro Cowo

The Christmas holidays are always a festive time of the year, but it is also a time when crimes such as robberies and burglaries spike.  In recent weeks, there have been an increase in the number of reported aggravated burglaries and the police department has increased its patrols, among other crime fighting measures during this season. As Superintendent Alejandro Cowo told the media today, they are working around the clock to ensure citizen’s security.  Here are some tips for shoppers as they do their final rounds downtown.

“Especially here in Belize City, you have noticed there is an increased of police presence especially in the Albert Street area, which is the biggest commercial area in the city. There are several police officers working in the morning and late into the night when the shops are closing; it is extra patrol that they are conducting. And almost every corner at Albert Street there is a police officer just in case if anything happens and also providing security to the citizens who are doing their daily shopping.”
