Crime Appears to be Down, But Need for Local
Support Continues
By Fritz Elmendorf

The Tourist Police stationed at Playa Guiones appear to be deterring crime, but the delegation of 12 officers continue to face challenges related to local financial support, as well as some bureaucratic issues.

Last year Nosara’s newly formed Security Association raised $19,750 and spent all but $3,000 to support the office expenses of the Tourist Police delegation at Guiones, as well as pay for some repairs at the station of the Fuerza Publica in Nosara Centro, according to the report made by Association President Agnes Pinheiro at a Dec. 11 public meeting.

While anecdotal reports indicate that break-ins are still a common problem, Tourist Police Chief Jeison Vargas reported to the Association that only three theft reports were taken in October, ten in November and only one so far in December, with no reports of violence.

Joining forces. The Security Association recently joined with the Nosara Civic Association, the Asociacion de Desarrollo Integral for Nosara and Esperanza and the new Nosara Tourist Chamber to write a letter and arrange a meeting with government officials to address local concerns about crime, road improvements and tourism promotion. The letter was sent to the ministers of Security, Tourism and Transportation.
