One Hundred Body Cams to be Donated to Police Department

Chester Williams

The Belize Police Department is yet to deploy body cameras for officers in the field, despite a donation of a hundred devices by the Minister of Tourism and Diaspora Relations.  Those cameras will be used to record arrests, as well as evidence from crime scenes.  According to Commissioner of Police Chester Williams, cameras are also going to be installed along the John Smith Road in the weeks ahead.


Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“We have received one hundred body cams through the Minister of Tourism and I want to thank the honorable Anthony Mahler for that donation and we are hoping to have the handing over very shortly and I will leave the rest for the handing over ceremony.”



“Okay, and what about the cameras on the John Smith Road?”


Chester Williams

“We are in the process of doing the installation.  We have done the site visits to identify the areas where we’ll put the cameras and so, hopefully, by the end of this week or next week, Champion Security will be installing the cameras.”



“How many cameras are we talking about?”


Chester Williams

“We’re looking at three PTZs and two license plate readers.”
