Police Minister Hails COMSTAT Meeting!

As you heard just now, crime is down in the country for the first three months of this year.  Those statistics were shared this morning when the Belize Police Department hosted its national quarterly computer statistics session with all commanders from the different regions, formations and divisions countrywide. It’s a meeting of the top brass in the department that has been taking place for seven years now.  The officers engaged Minister Kareem Musa, along with C.E.O. Kevin Arthurs and ComPol Chester Williams on the issue of crime in their respective jurisdictions.  Today, Minister Musa briefed the media about the significance of this meeting as it relates to tackling crime in the country.

“It is a very important tool in policing, as a matter of fact I would even go farther to say that it is a weapon in crime fighting strategy because what we do is that we review the statistics over the first quarter to see where it is crime is happening, who is committing these crimes and we certainly then make adjustments in our strategy to focus on these areas and to come up with new and innovative ways including the use of technology to better our crime fighting strategy.  So, it is a very transparent and accountable session because everybody has to come forth and inform the Commissioner and the Ministry of what has been going on so that we can make the necessary adjustments.”
