Citizen Security in Latin America

Balance de estrategias de seguridad para zonas críticas en Bogotá y Medellín

Las estrategias de policiamiento (anglicismo para policing) han sido implementadas a través de una serie de oleadas en América Latina y de especial manera en Colombia. Siendo el Community Policing la primera estrategia de policiamiento adoptada institucionalmente durante inicios del Siglo XXI, la siguiente y más nueva oleada ha sido aquella del Hot Spot Policing. Las estrategias de zonas críticas han ido desplazando poco a poco a las iniciativas de policía comunitaria, aunque pequeños rezagos de cada tipo de policiamiento se mantienen en el actuar de la Policía Nacional de Colombia.

El presente artículo estudia el planeamiento e implementación de los planes históricos de dichas ciudades para emitir un concepto evaluativo sobre su eficiencia.

Making Cities Safer: Citizen Security Innovations from Latin America
Cities are where the policy and practice of citizen security are determined. Although national and subnational strategies are essential to scaling-up crime prevention, cities are where they are put into practice. Because of the way they bring opportunities and risks into focus, cities are natural laboratories of policy innovation to prevent and reduce violence. Some of the most remarkable progress in homicide reduction, crime prevention and public safety in recent decades has occurred in large and medium-sized cities, especially in Latin America and the Caribbean.
