Share This

The National Chamber of Commerce and police forces implement a plan against crime. To increase the security and safety of all the businesses in the city and hasten the reaction of the law enforcement forces, a special plan was announced  in this regard on Saturday May 24th, 2014.

This strategy consists basically in a faster and more efficent communication between four Private Security companies and the State and Municipal Police Departments.

This way, a special radio frequency was recently established in order to make crime reports arrive faster to the Police Forces, so they can reach crime scenes in less time, and actually be able to be there on time to stop the crimes from occuring. They also will be able to attend distress calls faster.

It is expected that other Private Security firms join this plan, that for now, is concentrated in stores and shops, but the idea is to extend it to all kinds of businesses and private properties as well.
