The day after taking office I met with the head of the Gendarmerie and we talked about this issue. . But We decided to go to the facts and get to work. We define 575 troops who come to work, that do not come and go, they come to stay. That is why the creation of mobile detachment 7 to seriously intervene in this problem that generates so many problems for the city. That is the main objective. “

That is why we are working in this way. We know the diagnosis and All the Gendarmerie personnel are working and we use the diagnosis made by the province to put an end to this situation.

Aníbal Fernández later valued the fact that in the province “there is a very strong intelligence work and we are going to take advantage of it. It is our responsibility, it is not an issue that only concerns the governor and Mayor Javkin. “

They have been working on this issue for several days. The result we seek is to solve a problem. It is not a football game. But we are going to work with everyone, with federal and provincial prosecutors, “he stressed.
