“Crime Stoppers Belize” signs placed across San Pedro town

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Crime Stoppers Belize has donated eight “Crime Stoppers Belize” signs to the newly installed Crime Stoppers San Pedro branch. The signs were placed in key points around San Pedro Town. On Monday, May 13th, Councilor Gabriel “Gaby” Nuñez, Councilor Wally Nuñez, SPTC foreman Freddie Gonzalez and SP Chief of Police, Luis Castellanos were up and about installing the signs themselves.

The purpose of the signs is to make the “Crime Stoppers Belize” contact number readily available to the community and to encourage people to call and be part of the fight against crime. The signs were strategically placed where they would receive the most visibility for the public. The first two signs were placed in front of each airline station: across from Tropic Air on the south wall of the San Pedro Roman Catholic Primary School, and across from Maya Island Air on the Captain Shark’s building. Another two signs were placed in the roundabout located by Banyan Bay Resort. Signs were also placed at both water service terminals: San Pedro/Belize Express Water Taxi and Caye Caulker Water Taxi. The last two signs were placed at both entrances of the Sir Barry Bowen Bridge.

According to Councilor Wally Nunez, this is part of a plan to partner with the SP police to reduce crime in the community. “The SPTC and the OC are working together to get the people more informed on what should be done in case they witness a crime or know any information that can lead the police to solve a crime,” said Nuñez.

The public can contact Crime Stoppers Belize at their hot line 0800-922-8477 or visit their webpage at www.crimestoppersbelize.org. Rewards are available for any information that can lead to solving a crime.
