At this afternoons’ press briefing, the Regional Command which saw the greatest reduction in crime for last month was awarded for their efforts. This was done along with Awards to the specific sub formation within that particular region. Minister of Police and Belmopan Area Representative, the Hon. John Saldivar handed over that awards.
Hon. John Saldivar – Minister of Police:
I’m happy to announce that the Northern Formation is the winner of this month’s award for being the Formation that saw the greatest percentage reduction in crime over the period under review, about 45% reduction in crime over the previous month, which was April.
Both awards went to the North and the Police sub-formation in Orange Walk received the check of 1000 dollars to be used within that precinct however the officer commanding sees it fitting.
