Santo Domingo.– Police chief Manuel Castro Castillo yesterday decided to strengthen security in the resort town of Boca Chica with the inclusion of 50 new agents, five motorbikes, four vehicles anda truck, as well as modern communication equipment.

TourismSecurity Agency (Cestur) chief Amilcar Fernandez said the security in that resort town has been reinforced since last week with the enlisting of 60 new members.
