Dear A.M. Costa Rica:
I agree with an earlier commentator that we are inundated with negative stories, and I would like to offer a positive commentary about Fuerza Pública.
I live in a remote area near San Isidro de Heredia. Monday night an intruder was spotted on the property, and the resident gardener gave initial chase. Together, we called Fuerza Pública in San Isidro, and within 10 minutes they arrived on the scene, an extended cab pickup truck with five officers! The gate was opened and they drove onto the property and promptly spread out on a search. The suspect was long gone.
I would like to commend the officers that responded for their prompt arrival, thorough property search, and consultation with us before they departed. Bien hecho!
A grateful Gringo!
