With much infrastructural work on the Nation’s Capital already underway, the Traffic Department within the Belmopan City Council is now enhancing the skill sets of its traffic wardens. These specially designated personnel, who ensure the smooth flow of traffic in Belmopan, have undergone two days of training at the Police Training Academy on both Saturday and Sunday of this past weekend.  

Lecturers for the two day course included Mr. Kevin Jones (Traffic Manager), who discussed the standard operating procedures of the Traffic Department, while Ms. Lucia Ellis addressed the wardens with a motivational talk.  Mr. Emil Pulido based his talk on professional Development. A discourse on Public Relations and Road safety was given by Ms. Pamela Scott and Shantel Jacobs from the Belize Road Safety Project. Other lectures to the wardens were given by members of the Police Training Academy, which included topics on motor vehicles and road traffic, licenses & insurance, report writing, justifiable force and harm and the types of evidence acceptable by the court. The Belmopan City Council would like to extend congratulations to all the 12 traffic wardens who willingly attended the training.
