The president focused on the vulnerability of areas with a strong gang presence.

Together, the members of the National Government, the Prosecutor General’s Office and the National Police will be deployed to improve security in the northeast section of Bogota, where microtrafficking and microextortion are strong.

Bogota’s street crime levels are amongst the highest in Colombia, however the Colombian capital has experienced a steady fall in homicides over the past decade.
