Screen_Shot_2016-07-13_at_6.17.08_PMIn April of this year GOB inaugurated the joint military forward operating base that stands at the mouth of the Sarstoon River which was intended to house the Belize Defense Force and coast guard personnel. Three months after its launch, the base is still only being used by the B.D.F. with no presence by the Belize Coast Guard. According to C.E.O. in the Ministry of National Security, George Lovell, there is a plan being put together to see how best a coastguard team can be accommodated at the F.O.B.


Ret. Col. George Lovell, C.E.O., Ministry of National Security


“Well, nothing went wrong actually.  My understanding is that the coast guard needs to have a team that can operate as a team at that location.  I am currently working with the commander of the Belize Defense Force to see how we could accommodate that.  They had initially two people placed out there but they cannot operate with two people, that is the coast guard.  They cannot operate with two people.  And certainly it is the Ministry of National Security’s intention for us to have a joint base as we had intended for it to be in the first instance.”
