Special Constables Awarded

The San Pedro Police Department and San Pedro Town Council have jointly given out two awards in recognition of the hard work and dedication of two individuals to the island of Ambergris Caye.

On Friday, January 20, 2006, Mayor Elsa Paz and Inspector Sabal presented special constables Samuel Gomez and Orlando Mendez with certificates of outstanding performance for their dedication in assisting the San Pedro Police Department in reducing crime on the island.

“These two gentlemen have been very responsible and dedicated to the Police Department,” commented Inspector Sabal. “They are disciplined and their work towards assisting the police is very outstanding. Both of them are ready to work whenever they are called for assistance.”

Most recently, Samuel Gomez was instrumental in capturing the thieves who broke into the credit union stealing the safe. Samuel also provides police the use of his private vehicle and boat whenever the need arises. Orlando Mendez is the only full-time special constable who is available at any hour to the police department. Inspector Sabal also made mention that both men greatly assisted the police in patrolling during this past busy holiday season.
