Test mode for 911 emergencies starts in weeks
Santo Domingo.- Justice minister Francisco Domínguez on Wednesday said the 911 emergency system will start operating as a pilot program in the coming weeks, in Greater Santo Domingo’s urban and most vulnerable areas.
He said the system aims to provide an efficient response to the population, with tools that allow heightened vigilance and ensure safety.
“The most vulnerable points have been identified first, those with the highest rates of violence and street crime, starting from there, then the streets and alleys are great challenges which need the authorities’ quick response to any citizen’s need,” the official said.
Dominguez said the investment in human and technical resources to assemble the entire structure means the system will provide results.
