The Corozal Police Formation is gearing up for the long Easter holiday weekend but in the same light they are asking the public to do their share in maintaining peace and order in the district. Officer Commanding the Corozal Police Formation, Andrew Ramirez, says there is much that business owners can do to safeguard their stores.

RAMIREZSAndrew Ramirez- O.C Corozal Police

“1. Report anything suspicious either vehicle or persons, I think Corozalenos or nortenous knows exactly who the north individuals are so we can just look out for outsiders.  2. Close your business on time and do not risk opening after the prescribe hours. 3. Do not take anything for granted. 4. Do not walk in isolated areas by yourself. 5. Avoid going out alone with amount of cash and jewellery. 6. Do not over consume alcohol and know who you socialize with. 7. If you leave your house during the Easter Holidays please contact your neighbour and the police we will ensure that patrols are conducted in those areas during your absents and please be reminded that the Corozal Police Station Number is 402-0022.”

Ramirez also asks bus and taxi drivers to assist the police since in transit criminals will use these modes of transportation. He also gave some sound advice for those who are planning on taking their families to the beach, lagoon or river sides.

Andrew Ramirez- O.C Corozal Police

“Always swim in groups and never alone, do not jump into shallow or murky waters and if you cannot swim please stay in the shallow waters. Do not swim in deep water of strong current, always inform someone of the boat, please use identifiable clothes and in case of emergency immediately shout for help, children especially should be supervised by responsible adults we also want to make sure that individual throw any type of objects whether it be bottles or any kind of items in the water since the swimming public will be using it, do not enter the water whilst under the influence of drugs or alcohol and ensure that you have the necessary safety vest on, if there is anybody that suffers medical conditions to inform the boat captain immediately  and if you are travelling on private vessels and so forth ensure that the vessel have enough fuel to and from your departure and on behalf of the Corozal formation and the northern region on a whole we would like to extend a happy Easter to one an all visitors alike and asked them to please be safe.”

And again we reiterate the age old warnings that if you drive don’t drink and if you drink don’t drive. Commuters are asked to wear their seatbelts and ensure that vehicles are properly documented and functioning before traveling on the road.
