Colombian authorities also said that some 203.2 tons of cocaine and 297 kg of heroin were seized and destroyed during this period, which has a significant impact on the finance of illegal gangs and the guerrillas groups.

The South American country has been analyzing its security politics, which improved its operational capacity and resulted in a significant increase of the number of police officers in the streets.
