This is as close as we can get to the Community Policing structure that we expect to have. “The other thing is that we are also engaging the Army, so there will be a bit more military presence, especially along the roads and as you’ve heard, the Inspector General of Police has committed to full coverage with even helicopters.” Read more here.
