Deputy Compol Elodio Aragon receives vehicles from Hon. Saldivar - accompanied by Finance Officer Lisa MclaughlinMinister of National Security, Hon. John Saldivar, on Wednesday handed over two (2) new Mahindra Pickup Trucks to the Police Department.

Receiving the vehicles on behalf of the Police Department was Deputy Commissioner Elodio Aragon, who then handed them over to the Officer Commanding the Northern Region, Senior Superintendent Joseph Myvette. He was accompanied by the newly appointed Officer Commanding the Orange Walk Formation, Superintendent Dennis Arnold; and the Officer Commanding the Corozal Formation, Superintendent Andrew Ramirez.

As Deputy Commissioner Elodio Aragon noted, one of the vehicles is being assigned to Orange Walk, the other to Corozal. “These vehicles are really needed in the North because of the wide amount of ground they have to cover, the Police Officers. And as we begin to improve upon our services to reach out to our communities, these vehicles will come in handy for officers to be able to get out there and to look into reports that arise from out of these rural areas. So these vehicles will play a key role to assist and improve upon the efficiency of the Police Department.”

The handover of the two vehicles took place at the Ministry of National Security Headquarters in Belmopan.
