Samara Police Will Relocate

By Arianna McKinney

A lot located next to the Servicentro gas station is being donated by the owner of the gas station, Roberto Suarez Villalobos for the relocation of the Samara Police station. According to Miguel Gomez, secretary of the Integral Development Association of Samara, an inspection of the property was performed by the police and now they are in the process of transferring the ownership of the land in the public registry. Gomez said that 33 million colones has been earmarked by DINADECO (National Direction of Community Development) for the construction project. The new building in this location should function strategically not only for the Samara Police Force but also for Belen and Nosara, Gomez commented.

According to Jose Rosales Diaz, an officer with the public force in Samara, an inspection of the current station by the Ministry of Health highlighted the need for a change. He explained that the current station doesn’t have adequate drainage for the septic tank. The wastewaters overflow from the tank, and at high tide a foul odor is released.

Another concern is that the current station doesn’t have separate bathrooms and sleeping areas that would make it possible for female police officers to work in Samara. Instead of putting money into renovating the current station, it was decided that it would be better to invest in a new station that will allow for further development and growth as Samara continues to develop.
