Supt. HOWELL GILLETT – Officer in Command of the Belmopan Police Station
“Well we thought its necessary to dialog with the people of Roaring Creek, that is a hot area for us at this time, so we met with all the pastors from that community including Belmopan. As a matter of fact, it was 10 pastors in total, that we met with. We came up with the initiatives we want to implement immediately, as a matter of fact, this Friday, we are going to meet at the Roaring Creek Basketball Court. It’s a church service but the police will have a time when we will speak with the public. You know the church- one of the things coming out of the meeting is that the church surrounds itself too much with a building and what needs to be done differently is go to the street to do some outreach initiative. Those are just some of the things coming out of this meeting. There are many more to come, one of them I can remember clearly is t he issue of -when we do our meet and greet programs, members of the church will go out to do different homes to meet with members of the public.”
Police and pastors will meet with the community on Friday March 13th at the Roaring Creek Basketball court.
