Plan Patria Segura Enters Second Phase of Development

Plan Patria Segura, or Secure Homeland, will undergo its second phase of development, which includes the use of GPS technology for "intelligent patrol" the minister for internal affairs, Miguel Rodriguez announced on Friday. 


“We hope to continue gradually reducing the crime rates in all the major cities of the country,” Rodriguez said, refering to statistics which show an average of 40% decreases in crime in areas where the plan has so far being implemented. The plan is a response to people’s demands that something be done about the serious crime situation in Venezuela. It involves national guard patrols, communal police, and preventative programs such as workshops and cultural activities.
