Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina ordered an increase in joint patrols with an additional 1,800 police and 2,350 soldiers in every street in the country to fight crime.

His instructions came Tuesday during a National Palace meeting with senior military and police officials, prosecutors and Presidency chief of staff Gustavo Montalvo, among others.

Newly appointed Police chief Nelson Peguero said the patrols begin immediately, aimed at bolstering public safety.

During a press conference with other heads of military departments, Peguero asked the citizens to have confidence in his tenure. “I will work day and night to bring peace and maintain public safety.”

do cops standing around in the shade fight crim? Many crooks are dumb but not dumb enough to do crime while the police are standing there. What we need is effective law enforcement which will never happen.

#1, more is better than less.

#2, money deliver guy comes round yesterday. Driver of the motorbike works for bank place, guy on the back with gun......... PN in civil clothes ( we got into a conversation cos he thought I was PN (??) cos of my cedula, same as his, and also cos i had gun sticking out of my jeans :)------ well yeah, i trust them about as far as I can throw them ).
When I asked if it was his day off, he laughed and said no !! But no more food on the family table, so second job during his PN hours. He pointed out he was still preventing crime :)

better vetting and recruiting as well.

Yes, very true. I have asked a few friends who are of good character why they don't become a police officer....they laugh and ask me if I want them to be poor and hustle people to make a living.
