On May 17, the Belize Coast Guard issued an invite on social media for persons interested in joining their ranks. The deadline for applications was June 3, 2016 with the intention of having the applicants sit an examination followed by recruit training. On July 15, however, a notice went out informing applicants that the recruitment for intake number nine has been postponed indefinitely. Yesterday we asked National Security Minister, John Saldivar for the rationale behind this.
While an intake of recruits for the Belize Coast Guard is postponed indefinitely, there are opportunities in the Belize Police Department and the Belize Defense Force which we will share with you in our subsequent news report.
