Investment Project

Construction of four police stations in Guatemala

As part of the central government’s strategy to strengthen the justice sector, a tender is announced for the construction of police headquarters in the departments of Santa Rosa, Suchitepéquez, and Huehuetenango.

The Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) is providing grants to finance the Justice Sector Investment and Modernization Program. The resources will be used for the development of pre-investment, construction, and equipment for the following executing agencies: the Ministry of the Interior (MINGOB, for its acronym in Spanish), the Judiciary (OJ, for its acronym in Spanish), the National Institute of Forensic Sciences (INACIF, for its acronym in Spanish), and the Institute of Public Criminal Defence (IDPP, for its acronym in Spanish).

With this financing, CABEI will support the construction of preventive centers, courthouses, the INACIF central building and the expansion of the IDPP central building, among others. Likewise, the furnishing of the new facilities, mobility equipment, criminal analysis equipment, and surveillance systems, among others, will effectively facilitate the prosecution of crime in Guatemala.

The main objective of the execution of the works is to reduce the incidence of crime in the departments of Guatemala, Santa Rosa, Suchitepéquez, and Huehuetenango, specifically among people affected by acts of violence, homicides, vehicle theft and pedestrian theft, and thus strengthen citizen security mechanisms with police presence in the different geographical areas.
