In response to the increased crime rate noted recently not only in this column but in an expanded article in The Tico Times (TT, May 20), a tactical police team has been assigned to the area. Currently based in Coco, the team has been headquartered in a highly visible bus parked in front of Coldwell Banker and is assessing the changing situation in this fast-growing area. Many thanks to Coldwell Banker, and Linda Gray in particular, for both the efforts to obtain this and for providing facilities for the police.
