Caye Caulker Neighbourhood Watch Program Limited
Press Release
October 5, 2009
The Caye Caulker Neighbourhood Watch Program Limited (C.C.N.W.P.L.), firstly, would like publicly express its heartfelt condolences to the Young and Badillo families on the untimely passing of Mrs. Lorleen Young. Mrs. Young will always be remembered in our thoughts and prayers as a woman that was loved by many.
Secondly, time and time again there have been reports by tourists and residents alike of criminal activity or intended criminal activity on Caye Caulker to the Caye Caulker Police Department. On numerous occasions these calls for assistance to the Caye Caulker Police Department have gone unanswered and uninvestigated. Time and time again tourists and villagers have been turned away or actively discouraged by the Caye Caulker Police Department not to report any attempted wrongdoing or criminal activity on the island. There are further allegations that many officers of the Caye Caulker Police Department are in collusion with various persons who are connected to criminal or drug related activity. The C.C.N.W.P.L. appeals to Hon. Manuel Heredia - Area Representative for Caye Caulker and San Pedro - Minister of Tourism, Civil Aviation and Culture; the Belize Tourism Board; the Commissioner of the Police Department - Crispin Jeffries for a full and immediate replacement of all members of the Caye Caulker Police Department as this police contingent presently stationed on the island has had the worst performance of any police contingent ever in the history of Caye Caulker. This must be done to safeguard the interests of Caye Caulker's tourist industry.
Finally, the C.C.N.W.P.L. also asks all residents of Caye Caulker to participate in a "March Against Crime" walk on Thursday, October 9th at 2:00 p.m. at the Central Park to express their solidarity in combating crime on Caye Caulker. Together we must protect Caye Caulker.

Thank you!!!! I wish I could be there to walk with you. And I hope they replace some of those cops before I get there at Christmas, but knowing how long these things take.....guess I'll have to put up with them like the rest of you. I have seen things in the past. So nothing much has changed with the police I guess!! They must be 'little' men that need to be in total control to compensate for something!!!

I came across this on the internet, written in 2002!

"...the word is out to criminals in Belize City that they can do anything they want on Caye Caulker and not worry about prosecution. This is very unfortunate. Caye Caulker has come to depend on tourism. With these crimes going unpunished, the situation will become increasingly worse and cause people to avoid the Island."

Dear All:

Please be reminded that the "Walk Against Crime" is tomorrow Thursday, October 8th at 2:00 p.m. The response has been overwhelming with several business going the extra mile and closing their business while the walk is on. We ask that other businesses do this as well as this is a show of solidarity.
