The actions deployed will be increased from the 23rd of this month until January 7, 2023. They will be integrated by personnel from the Ministry of Defense, the National Drug Control Directorate (DNCD), and the National Police and coordinated with the Specialized Tourism Security Corps (Politur).
The measures will be commanded by the regional directors of the Police of the corresponding zones and their investigation and intelligence departments, according to Diario Libre.
