Francis Humphreys, Mayor of Dangriga

Francis Humphreys, Mayor of Dangriga: “Since November we have suffered eight murders and that again is cause for alarm. I trust that the law enforcement authorities are taking every step to deal with this before it spirals out of control and I am confident that as long as we support them in their great great task we can restore the security and the serenity that we have become accustomed to in this community.

Harry Arzu, Stann Creek Correspondent: So what would you want to say to the community in relation to this ? 

Francis Humphreys, Mayor of Dangriga: “Don’t be afraid to speak up and report to the authorities if you happen to be a witness to these things. We cannot allow the criminal element to roam free because we cringe in fear and cringe in our littler corner hoping that it doesn’t happen to us. Crime is a serious matter for all of us and we all need to do our share to break the cycle of violence that is threatening to engulf us. I trust that the law enforcement authorities are taking every step to deal with this before it spirals out of control and I am confident that as long as we support them in their great task we can restore the security and serenity that we have become accustomed to in this community.“
