Tourist police get transportation

The nation’s tourism institute has presented the Policía Turística with equipment worth 60 million colons, some $114,000.

The equipment includes 12 motorcycles and a four-wheel-drive vehicle.

The Instituto Costarricense de Turismo has been investing in the tourist police force since 2011.  Officials created the force with members of the Fuerza Pública to stem waves of thefts at tourism locations.
