Don’t despair, Public Safety Plan will work: Medina

Santo Domingo. – As a wave of violent crimes plagues the country, president Danilo Medina on Monday asked that Dominicans not despair because the Public Safety Plan will bear fruit in the long term.

He said there’s still work to be done such as the installation of security cameras and the 911emergency phone service, measures he called critical to the Plan, but might not be possible until year end. "The people must wait, because this is an old problem, I’ve always said that the major problem of violence and crime is closely linked to an issue of social exclusion, recognized even by President Obama in the last summit in Costa Rica."

Medina said the Government will call for tenders to buy the security cameras, which must be compatible with the planned control center, to better protect the population within a short time.
