China to support Dominican Republic police reform with officer training

Santo Domingo.- The Chinese ambassador, Chen Luning, has offered an academic opportunity for police officers in the Dominican Republic through the National Institute for Professional Technical Training (Infotep) and in-person training in China. This collaboration aims to enhance the expertise of police officers, especially in communication and patrolling, and includes cooperation with the 9-1-1 Emergency System.

During a meeting with the Minister of the Interior and Police, Jesús Vásquez Martínez, Ambassador Luning explained that due to China’s large population, they have numerous universities dedicated to training law enforcement agents. Therefore, he sees the exchange opportunity as valuable and beneficial for enhancing the academic capabilities of Dominican police officers.

The training program will be coordinated with the Ministry of Economy, Planning, and Development and will take place in Infotep’s technical laboratories, equipped with cutting-edge devices provided by the Chinese company Huawei, with an investment of more than 3.1 billion pesos.

To solidify the commitment to collaboration, the ambassador announced a visit in October from a delegation of the Vice Ministry of Public Security of China to discuss matters of shared interest related to citizen security.

Minister Vásquez Martínez expressed gratitude for China’s support and emphasized the importance of sharing experiences between the two countries. The possibility of joint initiatives, such as participating in community events and sports activities, was also discussed during the meeting.

This is not good. I’ve seen this tyrannical dictator supporting police in action personally. Why D.R is following this type of law enforcement is incomprehensible. All dominicans should reflect heavily on which direction the present government is heading. May the Good Lord help us all.

One has to be careful. It is known some Chinese cutting edge device technologies have included phones made by Huawei Technologies that have imbedded spyware. The Chinese lust for the opportunity to establish a brick & mortar base, such as one to study the stars having the clandestine task of monitoring US military communications from a location near the US. The program of helping the Dominican police is working line of Chinese geopolitics. Beware of Chinese bearing gifts.

All about surveillance by them with their Huawei equipment. It is why many places have banned it. If they ever took over the first thing they would do is take the Bible and the words off this country‘s beautiful flag. It’s the diametric opposite of everything the China stands for. The perfect country to show you how it’s done. Ask the Uighurs.

Luis, Why are you so angry about my words. You must have been deported to have such animus against the United States. I am a resident here in the Dominican republic and love this country and only want the best for it. There are 2.4 million Dominicans living in the United States. How many are living in China? Hmmmm or alarm for the weather, I wonder why? I still like you though even though you don’t care for my country. One more thing the day I stop seeing people risking their lives to enter. My country will be the day I believe it is no longer a viable country. I don’t see the same in China.

I’m all for bettering the security of the country but having the Chinese involved in this matter certainly raises some eyebrows. I really hope the DR gov’t proceeds with caution.
