The officers I've talked to say they get transferred a lot. They don't want them staying in one village too long and getting close to the locals.My only contact with the Belize police, besides the occasional roadblock where they're looking for Guatemalans, was on a hike just south of Punta Gorda. I was looking for the old Radio America satellite site and came across four officers drinking beer in the back of a pickup truck. They were celebrating the departure of one of them who was on his way to the police force in Belize City. Nice guys. They offered me a beer. We solved the world's problems for about twenty minutes and then I moved on.
Yeah, they're not all like those four guys on San Pedro. Glad to hear they were disciplined.
