Bolivia’s Morales Appoints New Chief of National Police

LA PAZ – President Evo Morales was present Friday as Col. Luis Cerruto Miranda was sworn-in as acting commander of Bolivia’s National Police, replacing Gen. Walter Villarpando.

The challenge for law enforcement agencies is to make the country safer, Morales said in a speech, adding that his government has provided police with upgraded equipment.

The Bolivian president said it was useful to look at public safety programs implemented in other countries and pointed to Cuba’s capital, Havana, as “the safest city in the world.”

“Could it be because it is a socialist country?” he wondered. “Could it be because (Cuban authorities) have a lot of experience, since there is no foreign meddling?”

Morales urged police chiefs to share experiences with their counterparts in other countries to improve public safety in Bolivia.

Cerruto said the National Police has a new doctrine after “finally eradicating foreign meddling and influence,” which “in previous times distorted the true essence of this fundamental state institution.”

The force now acts in conformity with the revolutionary social, political and economic policies implemented by the Morales government since 2006.
