Law enforcement to stop ‘suspect profile’ bikers

Santo Domingo.- Justice minister Francisco Dominguez and National Police chief Nelson Peguero on Tuesday defended the operations to stop and question motorcyclists who exhibit a “suspect profile,” in the wake of criticism by various sectors that deem the practice unconstitutional.

“If there are two young men on a high-powered motorcycle on public roads, without a helmet, without identification as a moto-taxis, who isn’t riding any woman or any child, they should be stopped and checked,” Dominguez said.

In that regard, Peguero said the practice has cut crime by 50% in Santo Domingo province.

Both officials spoke in the workshop “Leadership, Discipline and Service” held at National Police headquarters for senior law-enforcement commanders.
