Scenes of Crime Moves to Former Barrow and Williams Building

The Attorney General also addressed today another issue that is bubbling. The Scenes of Crime team is being relocated from the Queen Street Police Station to a new home in downtown Belize City.  Its new location, however, is stirring up controversy as it is the former office building of Barrow and Williams on Albert Street West and the move is being criticized as political.  While Barrow and Williams Law Firm relocated across the street to Equity House several years ago, the building in question reportedly still belongs to Prime Minister Dean Barrow and his law partner Rodwell Williams.  The monthly rent, we understand, is in the range of six thousand dollars.  Minister of National Security Michael Peyrefitte says he was given a tour of the new facility on Monday evening.

“I toured it yesterday.  I was invited by the Scenes of Crime personnel to tour it yesterday.  It was the place that provided the best space for the amount of rent that we would have to pay.  The people who work there are really excited about the, finally they‘re having the space to work in and they feel like they can produce much more efficiently given where they are working now.  I am sorry that Musa and Balderamos doesn‘t have an ex office space that they could have rented to make it not look political, but that was the space available, that was the convenient place that we could rent for the job we wanted to do and so we didn‘t think about it that way.  We needed the space and we got the space.”
