In coordination with all the police forces in the country, significant efforts are being made to comply with border surveillance, supervision in commercial premises and vehicle restriction, without neglecting citizen security.

“We have had important responsibilities to ensure compliance with the guidelines that have to do mainly with the closure of premises, in the first instance bars and restaurants, but now the control extends to all the premises that have attention to the public,” added Calderón.
