Gen. Salazar Sworn In as New Commander of Bolivia Police

LA PAZ – Bolivia’s Gen. Rene Salazar was sworn in Monday as the new national police commander replacing his colleague Edgar Tellez, who held the position for some 14 months.

Salazar assumed that responsibility in an official act before President Evo Morales, who had asked him to replace Tellez, whom he praised for his work in running the department and his efforts in the fight against gangs of extortionist kidnappers.

Tellez noted that while he was police commander, he turned over two of Ecuador’s most-wanted criminals and acquired for the first time an Automated Fingerprint Identification System, or AFIS, with the aid of a Cuban company.

The new police chief said he will prioritize the “social well-being of the police” by promoting housing programs for officers, building a hospital staffed by specialists, and creating the infrastructure for a new police unit.

Up to now Salazar has been deputy commander of police.
