Belize mission concludes INTERPOL chief's tour of Americas region

BELIZE – A series of meetings with senior police and government officials across the Americas region by INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble has concluded in Belize.

The first-time visits to Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras and Belize provided the head of the world policing body with the opportunity to directly speak with those responsible for national police, and to identify areas where greater support can be provided by INTERPOL to its National Central Bureaus (NCB) and the wider law enforcement community.

In Belize, Mr Noble’s discussions with Commissioner of Police, Crispin Jeffries and Minister of Police, Dough Singh, focussed on the expansion of access to INTERPOL’s tools and databases to frontline officers throughout the country.

In addition to visiting the NCB in Belize, Secretary General Noble was also briefed on other key policing activities in the country including drug enforcement, human trafficking and transnational organized crime.
