Turning to other police matters, for some time now, we've been receiving reports that the police officers posted on Caye Caulker are unhappy with their barracks.

Our information is that the police barracks are not very hospitable, and that the recently graduated constables are having a hard time adjusting to the living conditions of the decrepit building. Here's what the minister told us:

Hon. John Saldivar, Minister of National Security
"There is a lot of our infrastructure throughout the country that especially as it relates to police stations and residential quarters that need attention. As you may be aware, we are benefitting very shortly from the first disbursement of a 30 million dollar loan from CABEI, that will seek to address a lot of these infrastructure deficiencies that we have."

When the financing is finalized for the infrastructure upgrades within the police department, we'll tell you about it.
