By The Star Staff
On the occasion of the traditional celebration of Noche de San Juan Bautista, the San Juan Public Safety Department has established a work plan aimed at increasing the police presence in the coastal areas and busiest areas of the capital municipality, Mayor Miguel Romero Lugo announced Thursday.
The program, in which preventive surveillance will be implemented and which will address any violation of ordinances and laws that occur during the course of the holiday, will be put into effect from Friday at 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturday.
The municipal police assigned to the service program will respond to any events that may arise in the periphery of the Escambrón and Último Trolley beaches, and will cover the extension of the maritime land zone from early morning until late at night, with the aim of maintaining continuous surveillance in the area.
“As part of the functions of the Municipal Police of San Juan, this work plan is designed with the purpose of providing preventive surveillance and directing traffic on state and municipal highways in coastal areas where citizens frequent for the enjoyment of public beaches,” said Col. José Juan García Díaz, the commissioner of the San Juan Municipal Police. “In this way, we try to ensure that attendees, visitors and residents of the capital city enjoy peace and harmony.”
The mayor added that “it will be ensured that the provisions of the laws and ordinances in force are complied with, in order to promote a good environment for citizens and visitors to the Municipality of San Juan.”
“This is one of the dates when we receive more visitors,” Romero Lugo said. “Specifically the areas of Escambrón and Último Trolley become the stage for thousands of people to gather as a family, and our team will be there to ensure that everything transpires in law and order.”
