P.M. Says Police Department to Get More Technologically Capable

Prime Minister John Briceño

Because surveillance footage has proven to land convictions, the government is placing greater investment in technological equipment. On Friday, Prime Minister John Briceño informed what the government is doing to help the police solve these major crimes.

“We are using more technology within the Police Department. We’re starting to work on putting up more cameras. We have a loan with CABEI that will allow us to put more cameras in the hotspots, especially in Belize City. We’re getting body cameras for the police officers also, so when they’re out there, they could (A) know that they can’t misbehave and (B) if people are misbehaving that we can capture that. We’re hiring a few more police officers and we’re ensuring that these police officers are capable, that they’re trainable and that they are able to do the work.”
