|Sari and Tom Vidrine present ferry
tokens to ASP Orio
Sari and Tom Vidrine of the BoatYard's Island Ferry service recently
made a contribution to the San Pedro Police Department. Island Ferry
provides business and residential stops to the north and south of
Ambergris Caye for the convenience of both islanders and visitors. Both
Sari and Tom have been very active in the community since their arrival
to San Pedro. They have donated $1000 worth of ferry tokens to be used by
the police department for patrolling and/or policing the north and south
ends of the island.
Their main goal is to provide the police department
with a regular ferry to any of their stops making patrols more convenient
for them. The Vidrine's hope is that this will influence the community to
also get involved with the police to help battle the crime situation.
Accepting the donation for the San Pedro Police Department was Assistant
Superintendent of Police (ASP) Rudolph Orio. ASP Orio told the
San Pedro Sun, "With more community
involvement, the police department can go forward with its work. I appeal
to the people of San Pedro, especially to those on the northern side, to
focus on neighborhood watches in their area."
Thumbs up to the Vidrines of Island Ferry
for this significant donation to the police department.
