Forty members of the Belize Police Department and the Belize National Forensic Science Services are currently participating in a five day training course on Forensic Ballistics conducted by a specialist from the Mexican Federal Attorney Generals Office.

The training, carried out at the Police Training Academy in Belmopan, is the first of four courses included in the 7th Technical and Scientific Cooperation Program Belize-Mexico 2010/2011. It includes identification of firearms and ammunition, microscope analysis, ballistics laboratory standards, integrated ballistics identification system and field work.

According to Public Relations Officer for the Mexican Embassy in Belize Licenciado Marcelino Miranda, the objective of the course is to contribute to Belizes capacity building on forensics and to train Belizean authorities in new ballistic methods and techniques.
