Over forty police officers from the Corozal Police Department were lined up as they prepared for an inspection by the Regional Commander Joseph Myvett, Officer in Command Andrew Ramirez and Deputy Commanding officer Daniel Arzu. Regional Commander Myvett told us more on the purpose of the inspection today.

“We want to maintain certain standard and we are starting this month we are going to have monthly inspection to ensure that our officers are up to standard in their appearance as well as; we have started a physical fitness program in order to keep our officers physically fit as well.”

Victor Castillo – Reporter

“During the inspections what are some of the things that probably you could pin point that probably an officer can step up in order to maintain that standard that the department is looking for?”

Joseph Myvett - Regional Commander

“Items like the belt and the shoes, those are items that can be shined with polish and we are expecting that these officers are going to maintain that standard from here onwards because as I mention before we are going to be having these inspections once per month.”

According to Myvett, the strategies used last year has seen a tremendous decrease in the crime rate of the northern part of the country.

Joseph Myvett - Regional Commander

“Certainly our officers did work very hard in 2013 and there were a number of strategies that were put in place and those strategies resulted in the crime reduction; for example we had a more higher police presence in our streets and we did a number of operations as we all as we had put in a number of other strategies which we believe contributed to the reduction in crime.”

Victor Castillo – Reporter

“As the regional commander here in the north what good can you say to police officers in order to motivate them to keep up the good work?”

Joseph Myvett - Regional Commander

“Well, at the end of the day hard work will pay off , for certain if we are able to reduce crime it will be less work for us and then we will have more time to attend to the public and that is what we are striving to achieve.”

The Corozal Department has a formation of approximately 90 police officers.
