Denroy Barrow, Officer in Charge, Roaring Creek Police: “We are gathered to celebrate the retirement of a committed and well disciplined member of our great Belize Police Department. As we all know that just one day as a police officer is not an easy task much less to see thirty one full dedicated years of service, that is what Mr.Rash Corporal 402 has contributed, thirty one long years of service to this prestigious department. This is indeed a tall order and so on behalf of the Commissioner of Police, his senior staff and other members of the Roaring Creek and the wider Belmopan formation I want to thank Mr.Rash for his thirty one years of service. I also want to thank his family for without them this would not have been possible.”
