QCOSTARICA – President Luis Guillermo Solis considered understandable that people feel “harassed” by the violence in the streets, however, he asks for differentiation and to avoid generalizations, since the events are not occurring throughout the country.

The President was also emphatic that the authorities have not lost control of the situation, referring to the number of violent killings, some using high calibre weapons, over the past few weeks in the greater San Jose area.

To combat the wave of violence by organized crime that has gripped the nation recently, the President announced that 500 police officers of the  Policía de Control de Drogas (PCD) –  the drug control police unit akin to the DEA in the United States, will be patrolling hotspots to disrupt drug trafficking gangs.

The President said he is also is committed to promoting some 14 bills related to the fight against organized crime and drug trafficking.

At the Organismo de Investigacion Judicial (OIJ), interim director Luis Avila on Thursday announced the creation of an “anti organized crime” unit – a kind of “anti mafia” unit, if you will. Avila did not go into details of the new crime unit, only to say it will focus on organized crime.
