Police seek to regain public trust

The director general of the National Police reiterated on Tuesday, 12 September 2017, that during his term, any officer or agent who commits any crime will be discharged from the institution and face criminal charges in the justice system. Major General Ney Bautista Almonte said that among his goals is to restore public trust.

Bautista Almonte told reporters from the El Nacional newspaper: “If we work closely with residents in high crime areas, we will be better able to reduce crime in urban areas as well as in the countryside.”

Bautista Almonte visited the offices of the El Nacional to congratulate the administrators, editors and staff on the 51st anniversary of the newspaper’s founding. In his talk with the director of El Nacional, Bolivar Diaz Gomez, General Bautista Almonte said that they were going to strengthen the Internal Affairs Department in order to be able to quickly sanction or discharge any member of the force found to be involved in criminal activity.

Regarding this citizens’ perception of the Police, the director general said that they have a project to bring members of the force closer to the people in order to restore public trust in the institution. They also will be carrying out preventive efforts to reduce crime that will be applied throughout all of the nation’s security agencies including the Armed Forces, the Anti-Narcotics Division and the Justice Department in order to make the system work more effectively. Bautista said the police will be more proactive.

Finally, El Nacional reported that Bautista is working for the proper application of Law 590-16 that lays out the number of officers, especially general officers, that the police force should have and he noted that three major generals have already been retired.
