“The main objective of this project is that the Police Institute of Education can carry out its activities of the graduation ceremony, talks and conferences to potentiate the level of responses in the development of its functions, which will guarantee better results in the fight against common and organized crime and consequently, maintain the climate of peace and security that our citizens demand,” highlighted the head of government.
On his side, the Minister of Tourism, David Collado, said he was proud to be fulfilling the President of the Republic’s vision, in the continuity of the State and the interest to continue training the agents.
“With the signing of this agreement, we will be able to strengthen the vision and intelligence of the Cestur and, together with all the military organizations, also strengthen the tourist poles of the country,” he said.
