President Luis Abinader ordered an increase to the minimum wage received by a police agent in the Dominican Republic. The wage will now be RD$20,443. This compares to the minimum wage of RD$10,500 paid to police agents at the change of government, in August 2020.

The minimum wage will be increased to RD$25,000, with the additional funds allotted in the 2023 National Budget.

Police agents have also been receiving several perks, including free university education plans, free transport on the Metro, improved medical insurance and housing plans.

They were paid RD$7,500 a month when I first arrived.
They need to be earning a livable wage. It's the
ONLY WAY they will ever start rooting out corruption.
