This past week was celebrated as Police week and throughout the country officers planned various activities geared at regaining the confidence of the public and clearing the department’s image which does not actually stand out with the community at the moment in sight of a series of scandals involving rogue cops. But while the department has been working overtime to build that relationship with the community, tonight it is facing another embarrassment following a video which went viral on social media today starring an officer in uniform seemingly intoxicated on the streets of Belmopan.
The video shows Police constable 1319 Florencio Rash, seemingly not in control of his wits and unable to get to his feet. Weather the officer is under the influence of alcohol is not yet known. But senior officer of the Police Chester Williams has stated quote "The matter is being looked into and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against him if necessary." End quote
