Twenty five police men and women were awarded with certificates of excellence and five hundred dollars cash during a ceremony this morning at the Ramada Princess Hotel in Belize City. These officers fall under the Rural Eastern Division headed by Assistant Commissioner of Police, Edward Broaster.
In October 2016 when we sat down with Minister responsible for the Belize Police Department, Elodio Aragon Jr where he spoke of incentives being looked at to motivate the officers. WE asked him if today’s event was part and parcel of those initiatives.
The Rural Eastern Division under the command of ACP Broaster has seen the most community and police initiatives reported in the media in recent history.
