And despite the violence over last weekend in San Ignacio - that formation has been the most peaceful in the first month of 2013. According to statistics presented to formation commanders in Belmopan yesterday - in Cayo, crime went down by 41.5% in January. And within Cayo, the San Ignacio formation had the largest reduction. In the new performance-based police command performance assessment, that's worth money and recognition. And so, Officer Commanding Cayo, Senior Superintendent Aaron Guzman and Officer Commanding San Ignacio, Superintendent Ralph Moody were given a certificate of appreciation and their Zone received one thousand dollars to be used as they see fit. The commander says the formation will decide collectively how to use it.
