Only 15 hours after the public consultation meeting between our town leadership comprising of the police and residents of San Pedro, there is already good and positive news to report. Mayor Daniel Guerrero informed Ambergris Today that the Minister of National Security has immediately assigned five new police officers to be dispatched to San Pedro. This is an additional five besides the ten to be assigned to San Pedro Town in January of 2013.
This sets our good Mayor into high gear since it will be the town’s responsibility to provide housing for the new officers. Mayor Guerrero informed that they have already secured a house in the DFC area and will work immediately with expansion of the facility to provide comfortable housing for the new officers.
Incidentally, last night our Mayor remarked that so far he has been working in slow gear but he will immediately set himself and team on full throttle. Well, he kept to his word as he has already secured a 16 % increase to our police force in San Pedro. Kudos to all involved.
