For the past two years, the public face and the voice of the Belize Police Department has been Inspector Fitzroy Yearwood.
But effective today, that is no more. In a brief statement issued to the media early this morning, Inspector Yearwood announced his departure from the police press office by thanking the Belizean public for allowing him into their living rooms on a daily basis since February seventeenth, 2010. “The time has now come for me to move on,” writes Inspector Yearwood, pointing out that while he will no longer be the police press officer, he will continue to protect and serve the people of Belize.
But the departure of Yearwood from the Police Press Office does not mean that he is out of the department altogether. In fact, Inspector Yearwood is being reassigned within the police department, a new assignment which amounts to a promotion of sorts.
The veteran police officer has proceeded on holiday, and when he reports back to work, Inspector Yearwood will be the new officer in charge of the north side Belize City police precinct, which includes the Belama areas and Caribbean Shores.<< Read other news
