“In continuation of our monthly hamper give away, this month’s recipient is Ms. Sofia Taylor who is an unemployed single mother of three. Ms. Taylor has fallen on hard times and as a result she has been selected as this month’s recipient and we are sure that it will be greatly appreciated by her. The police department will continue to extend a helping hand to deserving members of this community to enhance the relationship of the police and the community.

“On the 27th of August between the hours of 5:30pm and 7:00pm a neighborhood watch meeting for zone three was held at the residence of Mr. Charles Selgado. We discussed matters such as the upgrading of streets, lighting improvement in the area and abandoned lots. Eight persons were present at that meeting, they were also assured that the neighborhood watch program revived and will never go dormant.

“Heart felt thank you to the Belize Police Department and all who helped to put this basket together. I am most grateful because it will help my kids to go to school with a full stomach and it is a very good program because it will come in handy when you least expect it to several people.
