Taiwan Donates $250,000 For Police Equipment

December 15, 2006

The Taiwanese government has donated $250,000 to help police throughout Central America exchange information about car theft and other crimes, according to a statement from the Public Security Ministry.

The funds will go toward the Central American Information System Network (RECSI), an Internet system through which International Police (INTERPOL) and local police can share information quickly and securely.

In Costa Rica, the Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ), Department of Intelligence and Security (DIS) and Public Security Ministry will benefit from the program.

The OIJ will use the system to update INTERPOL databases with information on stolen cars and passports, while the Public Security Ministry will use it to access information available through INTERPOL.
