The Undersecretary for Crime Prevention, Eduardo Vergara, and the General Director of Carabineros, Ricardo Yáñez, launched this morning the security plan for this summer, at the Carabineros NCO School.

The initiative seeks to reinforce the police presence and the protection of citizens in tourist places, such as beaches and spas, and also on routes, roads, parks and other sectors during the summer season.

The security plan contemplates the deployment – ​​in two stages – of 1,140 troops throughout the national territory, starting with 445 in the first stage and another 695 already in the last summer period.

In this regard, Undersecretary Vergara said that “during these months, as a Government, we will continue to deploy, reinforcing our articulation work for the protection of activities as important as tourism, commercial activity, transportation, that all the gears that make this The country advances, grows, but, above all, that it protects its people, that they are working”.

The authority explained that the policemen and policemen that will be deployed for the safety of the people come from three schools, Concepción, Santiago and Antofagasta, “to be present at a time when the country cries out for security.” Along with this, he highlighted the delivery of police patrols to reinforce preventive work in the territories.

“I also take advantage of asking everyone that when they see Carabineros doing their tasks, they allow them to do it calmly. Many times there are spaces with a large presence of people, of masses and we need them to be able to do their job, to have their space, because at the end of the day, the security of Chile is made by all of us. And the more we understand as a country effort, the better way we move towards making security the impression of justice and equity, but above all a right and not a privilege, ”he said.

Undersecretary Vergara also took the opportunity to thank the Carabineros for their work as a result of the great fire that affected the city of Viña del Mar.

The General Director of the Carabineros, meanwhile, pointed out that “as an institution, together with the Government, we have already planned a series of actions that seek to provide more security to all individuals and families, who during the summer period will visit spas in different regions of the country”.

And he added that “Carabineros is constantly present on the ground and we know that one of the main concerns of citizens is security. For this reason, we are here not only to inform about a plan, but also to reiterate our commitment to the peace and security of each one of our compatriots (…) Together with the Ministry of the Interior and Public Security and the President of the Republic, Gabriel Boric , we have worked to strengthen our preventive work. Prevention is the key concept for this plan to truly be a safe summer.”
