Government of Belize Introduces New Strategy to Fight Crime [PR]

Crime Rate BelizeOffice of the Prime Minister, Belmopan, June 19, 2012 - The fight against crime continues to be Government’s number one preoccupation.

The Administration is determined to halt the downward spiral, and begin now to recapture lost ground. Accordingly, the Ministry of Finance has made a special transfer of 300 thousand dollars to the Ministry of National Security for the purchase of special equipment for the Belize Police Department’s reconfigured strategy to combat violent crime.

Cabinet’s approval of the Draft Budget to be presented to the House next Friday ensured ample funding for National Security. This included an increase for fuel and other operating expenses.

In keeping with the new thrust, the Prime Minister has decided to move the Department of Immigration out of the Ministry of National Security. This will free the Ministry of National Security to administratively and operationally focus exclusively on its core, now singular, mandate.

The Immigration Department will therefore move to the Ministry of Local Government, Labour and NEMO; and Minister of State Elvin Penner, who has special responsibility for Immigration, will also move with the Department to the new Ministry.
