At the end of the meeting with the National Traders Federation (Federación Nacional de Comerciantes Fenalco) and the representatives of different shopping centers in Bogotá, the Attorney General, Francisco Barbosa Delgado, announced some of the guidelines to make progress within the framework of the public safety policy  “En la calle y en los territories”*.

In this sense, he pointed out that “the Office of the Attorney General and the National Police will work with the trade sector and with shopping centers to make progress in a preventive strategy” in which the technical investigative corps  (Cuerpo  Técnico  de  investigación  CTI) and law enforcement authorities will be in trade establishments to deal with situations that might arise in real-time.

Likewise, he stressed that special prosecutors and elite investigative groups will be assigned to cover different areas of the main city and will work with the Police and businessmen to offer security to citizens in Bogotá.

Another of the tools that will be part of the strategy is the identification of people when visiting shopping centers, as well as the implementation of security applications for mobile devices.

On the other hand, he specified that “with our public safety policy, we will be near people and in the territories, in this case in the neighborhoods of Bogotá, fighting against criminal organizations that want to have control of some sectors of the city.”

The strategy that was already implemented in Cali (Valle del Cauca), as announced by Prosecutor Barbosa during his visit to that city this Thursday, June 25, will also be implemented in other cities of the country.
