With the kind sponsorship of Belize Sotheby International Realty the members of the San Pedro Police Cadet Corps Program are proud to boast new uniforms this week. The San Pedro Police Department reinstated that cadet program earlier this year after it was dormant for close to four years.
San Pedro Police Community Officer Juan Choc has been assigned to run the program and conduct positive activities that will teach discipline, instill civic pride and create a positive atmosphere for the youths involved to become productive citizens on the island.
This past weekend the Cadets joined the members and volunteers of the South Neighborhood Watch in a clean-up campaign of the neighboring area and managed to clear bagfuls of garbage in the neighborhoods. The Cadets have also been taken on field trips that included a visit to the Belize Coast Guard outpost located on the island, have been treated to luncheons at various local restaurants and have been active in practice foot drills.
Belize Sotheby's International Realty sponsors 25 uniforms for San Pedro Youth Cadet Corps
This week PC Choc announced that the active members of the cadet corps (around 15 children) will be attending the National Summer Camp for Cadets Corps which will be held in Benque Viejo del Carmen, Cayo District. The camp will take place from July 19 to July 26 and will have the San Pedro Cadets interacting with members of other cadets from around the country and participating in activities which will help make their summer a memorable one.
Once back from the summer camp the Cadets will keep busy in Ambergris Caye with more scheduled foot drills and a collection drive intended to gather groceries and school supplies for needy families in the community. El Pescador Resort has also offered fly fishing lessons to the children as part of their monthly recreational activity.
The 25 uniforms were sponsored by Belize Sotheby International Realty which were made by Caribe Creations in Belize City. The San Pedro Police Department will be taking in new recruits in October of this year.
