The Ministry of National Security launched its Women, Security and Peace Agenda today. This agenda’s aim is to protect women in the three arms of the security forces, that is, the Belize Defence Force, the Belize Police Department, and the Belize Coast Guard. The goal is to create a safe space so that women are encouraged to join the ranks of Belize’s military. During the launch, the public was able to hear from the various members of the Ministry.
To celebrate the launch, the BDF and the BCG have been highlighting various women currently in their ranks on their Facebook pages.
