Corozal Police Commander’s message in this festive season

Assistant Superintendent of Police, Andrew Ramirez, Commander of Corozal police, has advised Corozal District residents to anticipate an increase in criminal activities because of the Christmas season.

His advice to Corozal residents consists of a set of tips that all Belizeans would do well to keep in mind. Residents are encouraged to report all suspicious activities to the police immediately. It is recommended that they not leave on lights or leave curtains pulled to the side, since this would allow criminals to have the advantage of seeing what is in their houses. It is also recommended that they secure their homes, and keep doors and windows locked whenever possible. Those who are going away should tell their neighbors, so that they can keep an eye on absent owners’ properties.

Ramirez also advises against drunk driving and urges drivers to ease the consumption of alcohol, especially if they will be driving.

Drivers must think of their families and others before consuming alcohol in excess, said ASP Ramirez. He reminds the public that drivers who drink, should not drive.

Also, children must be aware of the seriousness of “Palomitas.” He continues to implore business establishments to open and close during the prescribed hours. Adhering to the opening and closing times would prevent the criminals from pouncing on them. Ramirez also cautions businesses to not serve any alcoholic beverages to any police officer in uniform.

Any establishment that is found serving police officers alcoholic drinks risks having the police recommend its license be revoked, he said.

ASP Ramirez encourages the public to foster the community-police relationship and to have confidence in the police, because the police are there to help and to protect them.

Commander Ramirez wishes all Belizeans a safe and a happy festive season.
