Chris Noble and Alden Dawson are Awarded for Stellar Police Work

A pair of senior police officers was recognized by the Belize Department for their leadership effort in reducing crime in Belize City and San Pedro.  This morning, Christopher Noble and Alden Dawson were both acknowledged by the brass of the police department after it was recorded that instances of crime and violence were down considerably in their respective jurisdictions.  In San Pedro, Noble has been working closely with the community to keep watch over hot spot areas.  Likewise in Belize City, Dawson has expended all resources to ensure that the streets of the Old Capital are a little safer for residents.

Chris Noble, O.C., San Pedro Police

“San Pedro, being a unique place a tourist destination, a tourist mecca for the country, and being selected was one, an honor and it is a privilege for me to be there.  Now I was gifted to San Pedro by the Commissioner of Police, so being gifted to an island, I was gifted to work and I have been working.  Our strategy has been working very basic.  It‘s back to basic policing, the patrols, the meet and greets, the accessibility to some extent and the community has responded in kind.  And it has been overwhelming to the extent that even, I think, myself, have been in awe totally as to where we go next because every day there is a new development but the dynamics of San Pedro may not be what Belize City would have and not having that then you look at how to utilize what you already do.”


Alden Dawson

ACP Alden Dawson, Regional Commander, Eastern Division

“Most of my career I have worked Eastern Division and coming up in the ranks I have been studying the crime pattern and the crime trend and before going to Eastern Division as the O.C. in January, I have studied what would have made a difference in Belize City.  So upon taking over in January I began to look at our supervision, the level of supervision and how much supervising are we doing on the street with our police officers and I embarked on that and I began to show the supervisor the need for their input and how much input we needed to do.  And we started out and after the first month we saw a little improvement and we continued to harp on that and harp on that and of course the commissioner, you know, he lives in Belize City and always around and getting at me.  So he gave me more courage to press on my supervisors, even more and by the time the year was about three-quarter we realized that this thing, going to the supervisor to get the work done out there on the street and having them, holding them accountable was working so we pushed that all the way to the end of the year and that is the result of now what we have seen at the end of 2019.”
