Curbing crime is no easy feat and for members of the police department who endure copious amounts of scrutiny and criticism it can be a daunting daily process. While we are aware that crimes can happen at any moment, authorities are then tasked to work as diligently as they are required by standards that govern them.

 

This morning in Corozal, the top brass of the north including Corporals, inspectors and commanding officers met with the newly promoted Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett in a re-strategizing meeting. ACP Myvett says under his command, they are revisiting their crime strategy for the next 5 months in a proactive effort to fight crime in the northern part of the country.

“This achievement is certainly going to assist the north in that it is a high requisition and therefore the decisions that are made will certainly have more impact both in receiving in receiving cooperation from Belmopan as well as in our crime fighting efforts, today we are just about to meet in revisiting our crime strategies in order to continue to plan for a further reduction in crime over the next five months and as I said before I really, really want to recognize both formation commanders superintendent Ramirez from Corozal and Superintendent Arnold in charge of Orange Walk for their dedication and effort who have brought us to this point and I am looking forward for their continuous cooperation in order for us to reach our set goal for this year.”


Myvett says re-strategizing will also include the management of the regions resources.

“Now under your command as Assistant Commissioner what is the proposal that you have in mind or plan in order to reduce crime not only in the Corozal district, the Orange Walk district but as part of a bigger post that you hold at this point?”

“What we are doing it that we are not only operating as a region there is a sharing of information between different regional commanders across the country, there is a sharing of timely information as we know that crime affects us all and we share the methods across the country we are looking at what works and this is the reason for sharing of information with the different regional commanders.  We are also strategized in respect to the crime situation that which we are currently about to do and those are some of the major responsibilities including the management of the region resources which the northern region per say.”
