Abinader promises to monitor citizen security weekly

Santo Domingo.- Yesterday, President Luis Abinader announced that further operations against drug trafficking will be conducted, following the recent operation in Santiago. He stated that he will meet with high-ranking police officers every Monday to assess the results of the implemented security plans.

“We are coordinating joint actions, like the one carried out in Santiago last week, to be replicated throughout the country,” said President Abinader after a meeting with regional directors of the National Police and the General Directorate of Drug Control (DNCD), along with members of the public ministry.

The President highlighted that the technological platforms implemented over the past 18 months have provided statistical data that pinpoint areas where security needs improvement.

“The crucial aspect is that we are now working jointly and in an organized manner. Every Monday, I will be personally overseeing these cases and the actions taken to enhance citizen security nationwide,” he added.

He emphasized that statistics will be reviewed every week to assess the effectiveness of the executed plans and take necessary measures based on the findings.

“The usefulness of statistics lies in identifying areas that require more attention or concentrated efforts. Today, we determined certain locations, but we cannot disclose the full extent of the information,” Abinader explained.

He mentioned that specific measures will be applied in the identified areas discussed during the meeting, without disclosing their names or providing specific details.

The meeting, held at the National Police Palace, was attended by Defense Minister Carlos Luciano Díaz Morfa, National Police Director Eduardo Alberto Then, Interior and Police Minister Jesús Vásquez, Deputy Prosecutor and Director of Persecution of the Attorney General of the Republic (PGR) Yeni Berenice Reynoso, Minister of the Presidency Joel Santos, and other officials.

I wouldn’t say crime is getting worse, crime was worse before Luis took office, now is being put under control, the most important part is that finally the government is going after organize drug Enterprises. The great thing about DR is we don’t have a cartel problem like Mexico. Or a organize crime problem like a lot of Latin American countries. The majority of crime in the Dr, is pick pocketing, home invasion, car jacking. Those can be solved quickly by the government if is done right, and Luis abinadar is putting in the resources, by him targeting the drug Enterprises is sending a message, no matter how big you think you are you will be arrested

I would say because the police are not doing the job the right way,
I know in the wealthy areas they have regular patrols, they show there presence
They have the resources also

The bad areas and some middle class areas don’t have those regular patrols,
There’s no Omni presence of police
They come around at times, and sometimes you would see them do checkpoints

The national police needs to do what advance countries do
Have a regular patrol of the whole neighborhood, the cops need to engage more with the community, walk the blocks, talk to people find out the hot spots, find out who’s doing the robberies.
There’s a lot of tactics they can use to fight the crime Dr is having.
Is going to take more action from the government, it takes money
Luis is doing some things right, I’ll take time to get there
