San Pedro welcomes Inspector of Police Reynaldo Pook


Inspector of Police Reynaldo Pook is the newest police officer on Ambergris Caye. Pook is the deputy officer in charge of the Coastal Executive Unit of the Belize Police Department which includes the islands of Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker. Pook, who just one year ago was promoted from a Sergeant to Inspector, takes over the vacant post left behind by Sergeant Ernel Dominguez who was transferred to the Punta Gorda Police Station and promoted to the post of an Inspector.
Known as a disciplinarian within the department, Inspector Pook was transferred from the Corozal Police Station where he also served as the deputy Officer in Charge. While on duty, Pook will be second in command at the San Pedro Town Police Station working directly under Assistant Superintendent of Police Vienne Robinson. “I am here to work with the San Pedro community and foster a better relationship between the public and police in order to better maintain law and order on the island. I am also working to better enhance the discipline amongst the officer at the San Pedro Police formation,” said Inspector Pook. The Orange Walk born officer has been with the Belize Police Department for over 20 years and has held several positions in various parts of the country. The San Pedro Sun joins the San Pedro Police formation and the two islands in welcoming Inspector Reynaldo Pook to Belize Rural South and wishes him the best as he performs his duties in this area.
