What answer would Dimayor give to the police?: “Let them pay for private security”

The problem of violence in football goes beyond the clubs, the members of the d’mayor and the football federation itself, and for this reason there is a working group for coexistence in what is undoubtedly the most popular sport in the country.

Worse, the problems are too frequent and with no definite solution in place, the ball is passed from the court of the municipal authorities to the court of the soccer officials. The last meeting of the d’Amire proposed a return to the barricades that prevented fans from entering grounds and which had been one of the advances abandoned by the 2011 World Cup, but the idea was more rejected than supported.

But the new director of the National Police, General William Salamanca, arrived with a solution under his arm, ie with an idea that the clubs would not like very much but that has been circulated for a long time.

“I believe that when one focuses on a public or private activity, such as a concert, a sporting event, 1,000, 15,000 or 2,000 police officers, you are neglecting the safety of an entire city and I call for reconsideration.” Going to do that, I’m going to propose to the Defense Minister,” he said in a conversation with Hoy Por Hoy on Caracol Radio at 6:00 am.

And he added: “To be able to bring a proposal to Dimayer, to see how we are eliminating these responsibilities assumed by the police, so that they can also move to an area like private security that is increasingly Trained from, more professional, that the model of this service is also with the countries of Europe, in this hemisphere, where private security is the one that monitors, participates, controls sports venues, concerts and other.

According to General Salamanca, the long-term plan is to “remove the police from this responsibility and focus on its essence, which is civil protection and much closer to the community to prevent crimes,” he said.

Dimaure is expected to react to the initiative, which is controversial in itself, because although football is a private spectacle, because it gathers so many people, it requires state support.
