We are just a week away from celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ and with all the last minute hustle and bustle we tend to forget that it is also that time of the year when criminals are working overtime looking for their next victim in order to make a quick buck.

This year though they won’t have it that easy because in Corozal the police department is out in full patrolling the busiest streets of that municipality in order to protect residents and visitors from ruthless criminals.

“As part of our national action plan from the police headquarters level, we have commenced November the 15th where extra patrol is being conducted by the rank and file, and the extra patrol goes from 6pm to 10pm and that will conclude on January the 15th, so we have stepped up our game and we ask the community to support us and to report any suspicious person or vehicles within their community, I implore on them because these are times that we have outside persons referred as transport criminals that want to pounce especially the northern districts but as long as I am here I will try to ask the community to support us in relation to our crime fighting measures; do not leave curtain tied up, do not leave lights on because that will give the criminal the upper hand in relation to safety so implore them and i ask those again the business community to support us, to close within the prescribe hours and do not condone officer to be consuming liquor in uniform that is one of my serious concern right now that I have, we still getting complains about police officers in uniform being intoxicated and I don’t want those community to support those activities.”

According to Officer Commanding the Corozal Police Formation, Andrew Ramirez, the department has doubled their enforcement strategies.

“We have stepped up our vehicles check points, we have also increased in our highway patrols, everything we have double up in relation to extra activities for the police, one of the things that I want to implore from the community here in Corozal, because people are still calling the 422 but number has changed to 402-0022 because I am still receiving complains from the community saying that  they trying to call the police at 422-2022 but that number is no longer in use so I just want to repeat it and I want the media to repeat the Corozal station number 402-0022, again we have the 911 and the 922 but I must warn the community that the 911 goes to Belize City and sometimes it goes to Orange Walk so if you want a direct number to Corozal Police station it is 402-0022.”

While officers will do everything in their power to keep the festive holidays crime free, Ramirez sent out a special greeting to all citizens.
