The Corozal police force, under the command of Superintendent Andrew Ramirez, has undertaken a campaign to ensure public safety over the Easter holiday.
The police advise the business community and the public at large that as we enter the Easter season, criminal elements are expected to step up their unlawful activity. While the police will commit to doing its constitutional part, they ask the public to do the same.
Residents are urged to report anything suspicious in their area, either vehicles or persons. Businesses are advised to close on time and not risk opening after the prescribed hours. Take nothing for granted. Do not walk in isolated areas alone. Avoid going out alone with a huge amount of cash and/or jewelry. Do not over-consume alcoholic beverages, and know those with whom you are socializing.
Ramirez advises that if you leave your house over the Easter holidays, inform your neighbor and the police, and they will ensure that patrols are conducted in your area. The Corozal police force’s number is 402-0022. Bus drivers and taxi drivers are especially asked to assist the police in this endeavor, since seasonal criminals normally use this mode of transport.
If there are any concerns or problems with the behavior of the police, please record the date and time and inform the commanding officer, Superintendent Andrew Ramirez, at 607-8577, or visit him in his office between Mondays and Fridays.
