The Cavalry has arrived in Jaco. I circled around Jaco today and no, I didn't see any policemen on horseback (good idea, though) but they were VERY PRESENT. I, for one, am happy to see re-enforcements arrive.
Just their presence makes me feel safer.
They bring in this one mobile unit (photo) for different occasions and set it up at different locations. This Semana Santa, they are in the heart of Jaco strip. The "Downtown" part. Usually, they set up near the "red zone", north of town, but the bars will be closed tonight at midnight. I didn't see the Paddie wagon they bring. The last "sting", they hid it out of town until they made their "sweep". I just hear all this stuff, I don't do the bar scene here in Hookerville. I DO KNOW, YOU don't want to go in the Paddie wagon! That would mean a trip to Puntarenas Prison. Scary.
Isn't the little Keystone Cop car CUTE!!
One day I'll share my story of how "The Force" inside the "808" cop car (a police car just like in photo) probably saved my life. Some people criticize the police as all being corrupt but personally, I love the boys in blue. They are my heroes.
Thunder rolls outside and I've already had two mini-outages (I have battery back-up). I don't like the surges. I think "the rains" are coming. When it rains, it pours in my windows. Off to batton down the hatches.
