Cutting-edge Technology and Rewards to Capture Ringleaders

In a joint effort, the Ministry of the Interior and the Government of Cauca will allocate nearly 25 billion pesos in advanced technology, including facial recognition cameras and artificial intelligence software. These tools will not only increase surveillance but also improve the ability to respond to suspicious activities.

In addition, a reward of up to 500 million pesos has been offered for information that leads to the capture of the main leaders of the FARC dissidents, specifically the Jaime Martínez front. This measure seeks to weaken criminal structures that have affected the peace and security of the region.

Reinforcement of Carabineros and Commitment of the Authorities

During the security council, the deployment of at least 100 additional police officers in the municipalities most affected by violence was also announced, ensuring the permanent presence of troops in each police station in the department. This increase in forces is carried out with the full support of the Military Forces and under the direction of General William Salamanca, Director of the National Police.
