ColonelOn Tuesday, January 15th, newly named Commander Designate of the Belize Defense Force, Colonel David Jones, received on behalf of the BDF two brand new Mahindra Pickups.

The two vehicles handed over by Minister of National Security Hon. John Saldivar at the Ministry Headquarters, were purchased by the Government of Belize and are the latest installment in a number of recent additions to the BDF fleet.

Colonel Jones said these two new vehicles, along with recent similar acquisitions, and a few more that are expected shortly, will go a long way in enabling the BDF to carry out its essential functions, which include patrolling the borders and helping to counter narco-trafficking and other illegal activities.

Colonel David Jones, who is currently the Deputy Commander of the BDF, assumes full command of the Force on February 1.
