Senate will discuss modernization of the National Police this Thursday

Jorge Querey, national senator for the Guasu Front, reported at the end of the board meeting that this Thursday the bill “On the reform and modernization of the National Police” will be discussed.

The initiative was presented by senators; Fidel Zavala, Stephan Rasmussen, Georgia Arrúa, Fernando Silva Facetti, Enrique Bacchetta, Sergio Godoy, Patrick Kemper and Silvio “Beto” Ovelar at the end of May and seeks to improve the working conditions of police officers.

Likewise, the Agenda for this Thursday will have points referring to the acquisition of new loans that were already approved within the National Expenditure Budget (PGN). “The National Police reform bill is one of the most important issues, in addition to new loan contracts,” explained the legislator.


Fidel Zavala, one of the project planners of the initiative, stated, during the presentation of the document, that they seek to reward those people who make merits to ascend.

“With democracy we take on new challenges, both socially, economically, and other related to security. The police have always managed few resources, many limitations. The first time they received patrol boats were donated or recycled from the Itaipu Binational Entity during the government of Nicanor Duarte Frutos (2003 – 2008)”, he stated.

The legislator recalled that during the dictatorship there was only one police force in the capital and government delegates, called mayors, who controlled public security, worked in the interior.

Before the birth of Law 222/93, the National Police had an organic charter very similar to that of the Armed Forces, only with the difference in positions and ranks.

The legislator considers organized crime and its infiltration in power groups such as the political class, the National Police and the Public Ministry, as well as rural insurgency and terrorism such as the self-styled Paraguayan People’s Army (EPP). and the Armed Peasant Group (ACA) as the main evils that police officers must combat.

“Before we were just producers of marijuana and transit of certain drugs. But from the moment that Brazil strengthened its security and passed the law on shooting down planes, all drug trafficking migrated to our country. We have base paste refinement laboratories and that was found in Ciudad del Este, in the Tacumbú prison itself, ”he detailed.
