PC Kyle Serano honored as Officer of the Month for July
Thursday, August 7th, 2014
The San Pedro Police Department has reinstated its Officer of the Month Program, and taking the honor for July is Police Constable 1661 Kyle Serano. The Officer of the Month Program is part of a larger project being implemented to increase efficiency and productivity within the San Pedro Police Department.
PC Serano has been working in the San Pedro precinct since February 2014 and is a rookie in the Belize Police Department, as this was his first assignment after graduating from the Belize Police Academy. According to Officer in Charge of San Pedro Police Superintendent Luis Castellanos, PC Serano was awarded Officer of the Month because of his determination and desire to work. “When reviewing all the candidates for the award we noticed that PC Serano has been working tirelessly to complete his case files. He has made the most arrests in the past months and was one of the first officers to implement the law and shut down a bar that was opening later than the endorsed hours. This is why we believe that PC Serano deserves this honor,” said Castellanos.
For his hard, work PC Serano was honored in a short ceremony with Mayor Daniel Guerrero and Deputy Mayor Gabriel Nuñez present. Apart from a plaque that was placed in the police station for everyone to see, PC Serano received a flat screen television courtesy of Ambergris Seaside Real Estate, round trip tickets courtesy of Tropic Air, and $100 cash courtesy of Alma Garbutt and family. “I am very grateful for being honored with the Officer of the Month award. I have always wanted to be a police officer and enforce the law so that one day I can see a better Belize. I want to be able to grow in the Belize Police Department and for that to happen, I have to work hard and strive for excellence, and that is what I will continue doing,” said Serano.
