“We planted over 60 perenial as well as temporary flower bearing plants. This is one of our ways of showing gratitude to the communities that we serve. We had the participation of some 15 officers as well as personnel from the Foriegn Service of the US Embassy and also from the Western Regional Hospital staff. We believe that this initiative will improve the beautification of the hospital itself and it will give it an appearance and add a look of belonging in the community.

“For me it was  a great pleasure and honor to have been a part of this morning’s tree planting. This initiative shows that the Belize Police Department appreciates the community. This is a way of giving back to the community, it shows the public that the police department is also able to help with almost anything.”
