G.S.U. Deployed to San Ignacio

Chester Williams

As a result of the shooting that claimed two lives, police say that they are taking swift action to quell that growing problem in the west. Commissioner of Police Chester Williams shares what the department is doing.

 

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“I know that the police may be wondering what the police will be doing to address the ongoing feuds between the two rivaling gangs and I must say that what took place Saturday night or early Sunday morning is reckless and it demonstrates that some of these young men have no regards for life. So, what has been done – I met yesterday with the officer in charge of San Ignacio and we are putting together an operational plan that will encompass the presence of the G.S.U. in the San Ignacio area, as of today.   Let me say that while the police move into San Ignacio to ensure that law and order is maintained, who wants to complain about the actions of the police in dealing with those thugs, they can complain. The police will not be perturbed by those complaints. We will do what needs to be done to address the situation in San Ignacio, Santa Elena.”
