Belmopan- The Minister of National Security Hon. John Saldivar has paid a visit to the improved Belize Coast Guard facility at Southern Long Caye in the Belize District.
The new facility provides increased efficiency for the troops stationed there and increases their capabilities to aggressively patrol our Belizean waters. Southern Long Caye serves as an important point of control for illegal and criminal activities on our high seas. Since the establishment of this base, a number of illegal activities have been detected and deterred by the Belize Coast Guard.
The Minister was accompanied on the tour by Chief Executive Officer Felix Enriquez, Rear Admiral John Borland, Ministry of National Security personnel, and members of the Belize Coast Guard.
