The Secretary of Government, Danny Caicedo called on judges and prosecutors to be more rigorous with criminals since of the 600 arrests, only 44 were transferred to jail.

However, shoplifting has been reduced by 30% and personal injuries by 20%, thanks to the permanent control and surveillance operations carried out by the Government Secretariat in the company of the Police and the National Army.

Likewise, 10 establishments were partially closed for not complying with biosecurity protocols, three brothel houses were sealed for having minors inside, and four theft and micro-trafficking gangs were dismantled thanks to the work of the Police.

From 4:00 am until midnight, the joint work of the public force also allowed for a positive impact on security in the streets and public transport with the so-called ‘Guitar Plan’ to prevent thefts and fights.

The Secretary of Government, Danny Caicedo, mentioned that: “We are bringing security to every corner of the city and of the two corregimientos, we have strengthened our public force with an investment of close to $5,300 million.”

The complaint continues to be a vital tool to continue fighting crime, which is why the secretary asked the Soachunos to work hand in hand with the municipal administration and the Police to take care of security in the streets and that the vandals do not feel comfortable in the territory. .
