He has worked in the Patrol Branch of Belize City and Serious Crime's Drug Squad Unit. In 1995, he was promoted to Sergeant and transferred to Dangriga as the Sergeant in charge of that station.

He also hopes to regain public trust and confidence and increase police activities in the fight against crime by improving the effectiveness of foot and mobile police patrols. Mr. Flowers had the following message for the residents of San Pedro. "I ask the residents of this island to be more observant and alert in caring for their homes and property. I urge members of this community to report illegal, suspicious and clandestine activities they see or know of in their area. In particular, areas of drug trafficking, theft or crimes against personal properties and crimes against the well-being of our society."

    Mr. Linden Flowers is married and the father of four children. He replaces Assistant Superintendent of Police Michael Gutierrez. The San Pedro Sun joins the residents of this island in welcoming Assistant Inspector of Police Linden Flowers to the San Pedro Police Department.
