Samara Police Get a New Chief and a Second Vehicle

By Arianna McKinney

Samara has a new police chief as of November 13th, Jorge Luis Jimenez Gonzalez, from Belen of Nicoya. Jimenez has 12 years experience with the public force. This is his first time serving as chief of a police delegation, although previously he has been in charge of teams cuadras and during his 3 years in San Jose he was in charge of the motorized police. 

Jimenez says he is already familiar with the challenges and problems specific to the area since he served as an officer here from 2004 to 2006 and also was posted in Nosara for short period. As police chief, he said he hopes to promote unity with the local businesses and associations and strengthen the community security program. “We depend on the community. It is the community that informs us,” he stated.

The former police chief, Jose Angel Gomez Matarrita, told VON that he resigned his post as chief because he wanted a work Schedule that would allow him to spend more time with his family. He is now serving as an officer in Nicoya.

One of Gomez’s parting achievements was locating a second patrol vehicle for Samara. Gomez coordinated with the police chief in Playa de Coco to obtain a pickup that was formerly used there but in need of repair. The Samara chamber of tourism, CASATUR, provided 1.7 million colones ($3400) to repair the vehicle, which is a 2007 Nissan Frontier. With this acquisition, Samara now has two patrol vehicles.
