Attorney General and Police chief discuss anti-crime measures
Santo Domingo.- Attorney General Francisco Domínguez Brito and National Police Chief Major General Nelson Peguero Paredes met yesterday with all the provincial investigation chiefs, prosecutors and district attorneys from around the country to take measures against crime. They said that the murder and kidnap rates had declined, but that armed robberies and theft had increase.
We have carried out a diagnosis of the situation, we have seen a decline in the rate of murders and kidnappings; however, we note an increase in the rate of armed robberies and thefts, which is a great cause for concern over which we will put all our energy, courage and will with the aim of reducing this problem, which is not a perception but a reality,” said Domínguez Brito.
The AG said that during a three-hour meeting at the National Police headquarters, they discussed the issues of organized crime, contract killers, micro-trafficking, domestic violence, prevention work, unsolved cases and capture of fugitives.
He added that they would be working with the judicial system as well as the National Police strategies in order to take short, medium and long-term decisions.
