Tranquiliza a turistas presencia de militares
Members of the Navy are patrolling the streets and beaches as part of Operation Easter 2014, offering security and medical support to tourists. Visitors ask to take photographs with the sailors, and say that their presence gives them confidence in the security of this location where they are spending their holiday, with its hospitality, which attracts the travelers. The Municipal police have two checkpoints to detect speeding and offer roadside assistance. One is located near the vehicular ferry (on Rueda Medina) and the other is located near the Aguakan pump station (on the eastern road through Aeropuerto). The municipal police is also patrolling the downtown streets. It is noted that Naval admiral Juan Ramón Alacíala Pignol, with his deeds and work, had gained the confidence and respect of the islanders.
