Gov't urges provinces to reform local police forces

Security Secretary Sergio Berni today “welcomed” the measures to fight crime announced last week by Buenos Aires Governor Daniel Scioli, although he warned the problem will not be solved “with these decisions only.”

Regarding the rejection these measures have had, especially from one of the Supreme Court justices, Eugenio Zaffaroni, Berni said he agrees “with some of his criticisms.”

“First of all, I welcome the governor’s decision to reinforce the police system, which is one of the most important pillars of the fight against crime, but it’s not all of it,” he warned, adding the police reform “must be done not only in Buenos Aires but in all the provinces, like we have been doing with the Federal Police.” However, “That’s not enough to fight crime; a reform of the Judiciary is needed.”

"We must give (the Judiciary) the necessary tools for it to take action, as the Judiciary’s times are not the citizenship’s times,” Berni stressed.

He furthermore praised the police special operation which took place last week in the Santa Fe city of Rosario, severely hit by drug trafficking mobs: “Its success was the result of having deployed three thousand officers without prompting violence in those neighbourhoods where drug trafficking an everyday thing.”
