COMPOL on upcoming crime statistics

CRIME RATE

Recent weeks have seen a dip in major crimes in Belize.  The gun violence and murders have reduced significantly and the reports from the Public Relations Office in the Belize Police Department have been few. Compared to other Caribbean countries also combatting COVID-19, their statistics have been contrary. Police Commissioner spoke on this subject yesterday during a press brief in Belmopan.

Recent weeks have seen a dip in major crimes in Belize.  The gun violence and murders have reduced significantly and the reports from the Public Relations Office in the Belize Police Department have been few. Compared to other Caribbean countries also combatting COVID-19, their statistics have been contrary. Police Commissioner spoke on this subject yesterday during a press brief in Belmopan.

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “I think that whatever reduction will be reflected in the crime statistics at the end of the year should be acredited to the police effort because even though we’re in a state of emergency it places more burden on the police in the sense that we have to be policing far more than we would normally do and the opportunity still exists for criminals to take advantage. I will take you to Jamaica and Trinidad that even though Jamaica is under so much state of emergencies in the sense that they have the state of emergency dealing with gangs and they have the state of emergency dealing with the pandemic but the murder count in Jamaica is still going up significantly too likewise Trinidad. So I still believe that whatever reduction we’re seeing have a lot to do with the police effectiveness in terms of how we police the pandemic and how we police the gang situation and we will continue to do what we can to keep the crime situation as low as we can.”
