Latest Corozal News

St. George's Caye Day

Sat 13 Sep 2014 — A little threatening rain did not deter the crowds or the participants in the September 10 celebration of the Battle of St. George's Caye.

Corozaleños, including dignitaries and citizens, were out in force on Wednesday, September 10, to commemorate and pay homage to the Baymen, our forefathers, who fought off the final attempt of the Spaniards to take Belize. The few stalwart loyalists voted to fight or surrender, and though the vote to fight was a majority but not unanimous, the fight was unanimous! And we have them to thank today for their efforts so many years ago, in 1798. And we honor them!

Corozal Police Public Meeting

Fri 15 Aug 2014 — “Crime Is Crime” and “Crime Is Everyone's Business” — These two captions, could not have been more appropriate as it was resounded by prominent members of our community who attended last night’s Corozal Police Public Meeting.

Corozal Police Public Meeting

The meeting was well attended by leaders of our community, business people, Citizen's Coalition for a Better Corozal and a cross section of our Corozal Community, including various heads of our neighbourhood watch groups.

The main objective of the meeting was to introduce our new Deputy Commanding Officer of the Corozal Police Formation, Inspector Peter Serano, the Citizen on Patrol (COP) Program in the Corozal District and give an update on crime statistics for Corozal and compare 2013 statistics to our current time period.
