Amet has been around for 18 years
Monday morning, October 12th, the traffic police (AMET) in Sosúa celebrated its 18th anniversary. The traffic police was established by a decree of then President Leonel Fernández on September 10, 1997. The officers received a thorough training and were very well paid. The president wanted to prevent the corps to submit to corruption practices. Unfortunately, the initial high salary hardly adapted to the inflation. So the officers of the AMET are, like all other police officers, now severely underpaid.
On Monday morning the commemoration of the 18th anniversary of the corps of Sosúa took place in the Catholic Church of Charamicos with a Eucharistic celebration. This was followed by a reception at the police station where the complete staff were treated to some drinks and Dominican meal. The commander, Ramírez Vallejo thanked all those present and particularly the business community of Sosúa for the support AMET has always received.
