The San Pedro Police Department now counts with the additional support of 11 newly sworn in special constables. The official ceremony took place on Monday, January 14, 2013, at Fido’s Courtyard.
Nine individuals from San Pedro and three from neighboring island Caye Caulker participated in the special constable program. Two staff members of the San Pedro Town Council also participated in the program; they were Town Forman Alfredo "Freddy" Gonzalez Jr. and Councilor Gabriel "Gaby" Nuñez.
The Special Constables Program was established to invite members of the community to assisting the Police Department in their daily duties such as patrolling around town or office work at the police station. Special Constable Brian Cook of Fido's Courtyard is a major supporter of the program and invites the public to be a part of their next program which is in the summer time.
Those interested in joining the program have the option to participate in one of the patrols so as to have a firsthand experience before signing up for the program. Interested individuals may visit the San Pedro Police Department or Mr. Cook at Fido's Courtyard for more information.
Kudos to the 11 individuals who took this initiative in helping out the Police Department and the community of San Pedro!
