Updated: April 27, 2016

When the recent promotion list for the Belize Police Department came out we brought you the story of the over one hundred and fifty men and women who were moving up in the ranks.  Since that announcement, training has been well underway at the Eastern Division North and South.  Assistant Commissioner of Police Dezerie Phillips spoke of what the training entails.


ACP Phillips went on to speak on how these recent promotions came about.

Love News spoke with four police constables who were recently promoted to corporals from the Eastern Division North.

Lavern Arzu has been in the department for 15 years and is originally from Orange Walk Town; Marva Grinage is from Belize City and got her promotion after serving for fourteen years.  Meanwhile, Roman Andrews is from Dangriga and has been in the department for nine years and Wilfred Petillo who is from Orange Walk Town was promoted after twelve years.
