A new police school will be located in Pococí in the Limón provence. It will be built next year with a $30 million donation from China, said Mario Zamora Cordero, the security minister.
“It will be about an hour and a half from San José,” he said.
The area allotted for the new establishment is 83 hectares. The school will have the capability of educating 800 students to add to the current police force, said Zamora.
Along with the school, the ministry has the hope of building a new police station. A bid has been placed for $23 million to build the new facility.
A final police improvement for next year will be more bikes and motorcycles to make for a more mobile police force, and more technological advances in the stations.
