Guiones Tourist Police Will Keep Working Throughout 2011
• Nosara police station inaugurates renovated facilities

By Emiliana García

Agnes Pinheiro, President of the local Security Association, confirmed that they are receiving financial assistance from a group of people in order to pay for the Guiones Tourist Police maintenance expenses and therefore she is feeling "optimistic" about the police station's future.

During a meeting held in May, the Security Committee warned that, if no financial aid was received, the Tourist Police would have to close its doors in June; however, thanks to the Association's efforts and the logistics support given by Luis Chavarría, Chief of Liberia's Tourist Police, the threat of not having security in Nosara is now a thing of the past. An extra officer per shift was even sent to Nosara in order to keep the Guiones office open 24 hours a day.

 


"We are looking for less expensive housing options for the police officers in order to spend less on rentals or avoid them completely. It is not an effective way to spend money" explained Pinheiro, adding that both the Security Association as well as the Tourist Police are looking to invest in additional safety measures, such as placing police officers on the beaches and hidden security cameras.

On the other hand the Nosara Fuerza Publica headquarters have already been inspected by Nicoya's Ministerio de Salud in order to verify that the required improvements have indeed been done and now they are just awaiting to be reopened. The Nosara Development Association invested over one million colones and several of the area's businesses helped with donations. In addition, the Ministerio de Seguridad supplied construction materials and provided labor to do the job.
