I'm confused. Many neighbourhoods around Boquete already have Vecinos Vigilante groups which are registered with the P.N. and there is a separate V.V. group in Bajo Boquete for commercial businesses. These programs are meant to be very localized.

neigh·bour·hood watch
ˈnābərˌho͝od wäCH/
noun: neighbourhood watch; plural noun: neighbourhood watches; noun: neighborhood watch; plural noun: neighborhood watches
  1. a program of systematic local vigilance by residents of a neighborhood to discourage crime, especially burglary.

Apart from the script being reader unfriendly, I'm puzzled as to why the person(s) responsible for the communication wouldn't attach their name or contact information to it.

The Department of Citizen Security and the police carried out an important workshop in Boquete, on the basis of the different problems that boquetenos constantly reported by citizens and with the purpose that these concerns are resolved.

For the Commissioner Theophilus Brown is a work in conjunction with other institutions and organized society as the police listen to the concerns of the residents and then establishes a bridge to provide a solution in aspects of security measures in the citizens.

For the uniformed personnel there are many factors that do not correspond to the police provide answers to ensure the security of the individual but it can be that link to take into account these recommendations such as placement of luminaires, cleaning up vacant lots, among others.

Consulted the Commissioner Moreno on the theft that was given in a district's private polyclinic denied that has been given with weapon in hand and that the subject that committed the crime was captured with the products stolen and it is secure, while the Public Prosecutor's office is still investigating.

In the workshop developed today in the rainbow of the Fair of Boquete participated group and directives of Neighborhood Watch, foreign community, civil society, segments of the police and members of the corregedoria and representatives of the municipality.
