InfoSegura Invests in Belize’s Future Crime Intelligence Architecture

The U.S. Embassy in Belize is partnering with the Ministry of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries to enhance Belize’s national security and strengthen inter-agency crime-data sharing through the Belize Crime Observatory. This is so that criminal investigations can be swift, thorough and assure justice. It comes in the form of a donation that includes a high-powered Dell server and three workstations with high quality monitors and will improve data management by the Belize Police Department and the National Forensic Science Service.

“This invaluable investment supports the advances which the ministry has been making towards an overarching crime intelligence architecture for Belize – a vision that will place us well ahead of our national development targets set out in Plan Belize medium term development strategy for 2021-2025. This formal delivery of ICT equipment to the ministry of home affairs for the direct benefit of the National Forensic Service and the Belize Police Department will go a long way in supporting integrated data management through the Belize Crime Observatory.”

“Data-driven decision making is the key pillar of any modern day law enforcement mechanism and so the Untied States is so proud to support those efforts here in Belize because while one piece of the puzzle, it is an extremely critical piece of the puzzle. And all the other things that we are trying to achieve and support with our government of Belize partners are predicated on that data, the information, the intelligence to support operations, to support investigations, to support better use of resources. We all know human resources and financial resources are limited. So how can we put those to best use in the places that are facing higher levels of crime? We can watch the trends, the statistics and really use those to make better decision-making and have better outcomes for everyday Belizeans. So I am very proud to be here representing USAID’s InfoSegura program.”
