policeAnd in news unrelated to the plane but relevant to the Police, CTV-3 has received reliable information that the fuel allocated to police officers from the Orange Walk district has been cut drastically. We were told that vehicles on patrol are now given a daily allocation of 5 gallons only, and when that is done the vehicle must be parked. When we asked Senior Superintendent Myvett about the report today, he denied it, but did concede that they have had to cut down because of the high cost of fuel.

For context we note that in 2010, when the murder rate in Belize reached unprecedented levels and violent crime skyrocketed, Prime Minister Barrow cut the budget allocation to both the Police Department and the Belize Defense Force.

We would like to ask, also for context, if Ministers and their drivers are under such fuel constraints.
