San Pedro Police Keeping the Peace on Ambergris Caye

Christopher Noble

To ensure that everything remains peaceful on Ambergris Caye, Superintendent Christopher Noble and his team are advising all resident to remain home. Noble is advising all businesses that alcohol must not be sold during these times.


Supt. Christopher Noble, O.C., San Pedro

“My idea was to shut down the island to not have people leave but there were some issues and we saw some people did leave. Now we are seeing the bottleneck of issues that were supposed to remain in San Pedro that have funneled out. So it has funneled out to the Belize City, Orange Walk and Corozal area. We are supposing that it is contained and that we have no issues. This is not a time for you to be out in the streets. It is not a time for you to be on the streets. For me I would want everybody to be in by six. Hopefully people would understand this, the stores that have been still selling, we have been asking everyone do not sell alcohol. Because that would create an issue for us. If you end up in an issue and you end up at a police station and you are detained. What if we detain the wrong person? We can’t reverse an issue if it caused by somebody that is not playing far. I say that in that you can’t come to us and say that you were only taking one beer. Don’t take any beers; this will be for three days. And after that, I am sorry for a lot of people who are till stranded on the island and I am certain that we will mitigate that process via some situations that can be dealt with. We have areas that people can figure out how we can get to. For some strange reason I do believe that San Pedro is resilient. San Pedro always comes out smelling like roses.”
