You have a good point but they don't have much choice, it would be too expensive to transport them any other way.

As soon as the water taxi guys in CC knew about this they should have begun informing any ticketed and/or potential passengers about the prisoner transport so those who could might make other arrangements.

At that time of day there are no other arrangements.

So, am I reading this correct... the water taxi was bringing prisoners FROM Belize City TO San Pedro? It is usually the other way around, they are taking prisoners off the islands to go to Belize City or from Caye Caulker to San Pedro for an arraignment, and then on to Hattieville to be locked up. I have never seen prisoners going in the other direction. Strange.

I think they have to return for their hearing in the place they supposedly committed the crime.

Pehaps the police should charter a boat for THERE sole use, use there own boat or whatever but the public should not have to sit next to or traval with these people,in these numbers !
Surley The Water Taxi Ass. do have a say in this.

Not sure about San Pedro but the Caye Caulker police boat isn't always available for prison transport. Often they are out on some other activity. Also, the police boats aren't always in running order. I doubt the Water Taxi Association has much say in whether the police use their taxi's to transport the prisoners. Perhaps a special boat for just prisoners should be purchased with the proceeds left in the council's budgets. Personnaly, I think they should have to swim to court.
