Recently the Belize Police Department has been wracked by a series of improprieties, committed by some of its members, which are of major national concern. The Ministry of Home Affairs, as part of it Zero Tolerance Policy for police improprieties, hereby assures the public that every report or knowledge of wrongful act committed by its members will be dealt with expeditiously and with utmost transparency.
The Police Professional Standards Branch’s capacity is being enhanced and will now see its personnel take a pro-active role in ensuring that the Belize Police Department’s professionalism is second to none. The public is encouraged to report any activity which they may perceive as improper to the Professional Standards Branch. Every report will be dealt with professionally and expeditiously.
In a press release, the Ministry stated that it takes the opportunity to applaud the Police Commissioner for taking decisive action against those who reportedly were engaged in corrupted practices, unwarrantable use of force and other criminal acts that brought the integrity and professionalism of the department into question during those unfortunate and regrettable occurrences.
“The Ministry also commends and thanks those dedicated career police officers who continue to give their all in service of their community and country. We continue to encourage you to display that professionalism that sets you apart from those few rogue elements within the Department.”
