Model Police Precincts in Petén

Ambassador Luis E. Arreaga visited two model police precincts in Petén, which are a support initiative of the US Government to contribute to citizen security in Guatemala by strengthening the capabilities of the National Civil Police. The work of these police stations is carried out through four pillars that include monitoring centers, combined patrol activities, prevention programs, and research units.

The US has worked with the National Civil Police and the Municipal Traffic Police to establish 99 model police precincts across the country, where police officers use tools and techniques to work with citizens to make their communities safer. The police are more effective in stopping and preventing crime when they work together with their communities, since citizen security prevents illegal migration and helps strengthen Guatemala.
