Dominican Republic Police still can’t count its agents
Santo Domingo.- National Police chief Jose A. Polanco on Wednesday said an investigation is underway to determine how many agents live abroad, including colonels, to fire them for dereliction of duty.
The announcement is the latest Police effort to figure out how many agents are actually on its payroll and what services they provide, an embarrassing admission which spurs mockery among the population.
Although Polanco said a cleanup of the Police payroll is underway, he didn’t specify the number of agents who are abroad.
Interviewed after a meeting with president Danilo Medina in the National Palace, the official revealed that a three-story building will be built in the ??Villa Consuelo sector, to house the National District Police Central Directorate.
