Police are fond of saying that bad guys cannot outrun the Motorola.

Well, now Fuerza Pública officers have more than 500 new Motorola radios to use daily.

Security ministry officials displayed some of the 559 Motorola portable radios, 200 mobile units and 76 base stations that have been purchased.

The value is about 800 million colons or about $1.6 million. The new devices include a geolocalization system and a way to turn off the device if it is lost or stolen. Officials also said that the radios are designed to prevent scanning for hobbyists or crooks.

Mario Zamora Cordero, the security minister, and Juan José Andrade Morales, the director general of the Fuerza Pública, announced the arrival of the devices.
