ASP Michael Gutierrez

Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Michael Gutierrez has officially been handed over the duties as head of the San Pedro Police Department. As reported in last week's edition of the San Pedro Sun, ASP Gutierrez replaces ASP Rudolph Orio who has been transferred to Mango Creek in the southern part of Belize. At the time of ASP Gutierrez's transfer he was serving as the Officer/Commander of the Intermediate Southern Formation, headquartered in Independence. ASP Gutierrez has previously served the community of San Pedro. On July 15th, 1997, he was appointed as Officer in Charge of the island until July 31st, 1998, when he handed over his position to ASP Orio.  

    ASP Gutierrez is originally from Dangriga and has been with the police force for twenty-three years. His family consists of a wife and five lovely children. In an interview with the San Pedro Sun, ASP Gutierrez commented, "What I hope to accomplish in San Pedro is to ensure the environment's safety. This will be conducive to all aspects of security so as to protect, secure and enhance the industry. I want to also ensure that honest law abiding citizens can go about their day-to-day business without hindrance and obstruction. I believe this can be achieved with motivated mechanisms. First of all by preventing the commission of crime." When asked about his views on San Pedro he replied, "I cannot shed much light on this since I have recently arrived on the island. What I can say is that there is a lot of improvements in the infrastructure and the development seems to be much greater than the last time I was here."

    The San Pedro Sun welcomes ASP Michael Gutierrez to San Pedro and commits its resources to help battle crime.
