San Pedro is a safe destination for visitors

Following the violent weekend in San Pedro Town, where a tourist lost her life, the Government of Belize, through the Ministry of Tourism, plans to add two police booths on the island to enhance policing efforts. Tourists on the island and future travellers are assured that Ambergris Caye is a safe place to visit. According to Commissioner of Police Chester Williams, the San Pedro police station is located centrally. As the island community continues to expand, they need a further presence in other areas of the island. One booth will be placed north of downtown San Pedro and the other on the south side of the island to minimize police response time. An increase in police officers will help staff these new booths properly. The ComPol added that there is now a permanent presence of police officers by Central Park, and there will also be a booth there to make the park safer.
