Santo Domingo.– Armed Forces Minister Sigfrido Pared Pérez said the check posts in the border area will be reduced from 78 to 40, approximately.
He explained that the goal of this initiative is to add more equipment to optimize the service. Security cameras will be installed at each checkpoint in order to detect when a soldier does not meet the established screening procedures.
The officer explained that so far the Army has revamped five check points, with all tools soldiers need to do their job. The initiative will take place in all existing check points.
“The cameras will not be for the soldiers. They will monitor how soldier is proceeding,” he pointed out.
