Police Commissioner Engages with Downtown Belize City Residents in Meet and Greet

Police Commissioner Chester Williams led a team of cops downtown Belize City where he met with store owners, employees and residents in the area of Orange Street.  We met up with him, and learned that he was conducting a meet and greet with the residents.

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “Along with me I have the Officer in Charge of Eastern Division Mr.Romero and we’re also introducing Mr.Pot who is the new Officer Commanding Precinct One to the area so that the people can know who he is and establish that connection with him so that when something happens the people would know who to call in the event of those circumstances.”

Reporter:  Sir are you sure you’re not trying to campaign in this Mesopotamia division ? 

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “I am certainly campaigning yes. I’m campaigning to make sure that the work of the police in this area is as best as we can make it and so that’s why we’re here. It’s a community policing campaign. This is not about politics but I am simply here to do my job as a police, as the Commissioner of Police to give the public the assurance that as a department we will do what we can to make them safe. And I think that Shyne would be happy to know that the police is in his area and making sure that his constituents are okay and that’s what I’m doing today. The feedback has been good. I must say that on a scale of one to ten, ten being the highest, people rate the police’ performance in this area between ten and eight which I believe is quite acceptable. There are a few things that they are asking for us to do better and that’s the reason we have Mr.Pot and Mr.Romero to make sure that those concerns and those issues that these people have are looked into and I will make sure that there’s follow up to ensure that there is continuation in terms of what we are doing and what the public wants to see us doing to make them feel much safer. It gives us a lot of insight in terms of how people feel and how they see the police and that’s the important thing. I have always said that if you are not criticized then you’ll never know what your faults are and this is way for us to get positive critics or criticism from the public and then we must take those criticisms that they’re giving us and try to see how we can turn them around and get something positive out of them.”
