– Press Release, Belize Police Press Office – Since the launching of the “Jasmine Alert”, Belize’s Child Kidnapping Emergency Warning System on July 31, 2012, the Belize Police Department started their National Jasmine Alert Sensitization Tour on September 28, 2012 and will continue throughout the month of October 2012.
The goal of this tour (exercise) is to establish clear guidance to standardize an interoperable network of plans across the country and to minimize potentially deadly delays because of confusion among communities and police department.
On September 28, Community Policing and District Focal Point Officers met at the Police Training Academy where they were sensitized on what is Jasmine Alert, Jasmine Alert criteria, responsibility of national coordinator, responsibility of district focal point officer, responsibility of police officers (investigator), alert sound, text message and responsibility of community/other law enforcers. During the month October, communities (town, city, villages) and schools of every level will be sensitized as to their role in this program to make it effective. (Read more on Jasmine Alert)
