      Caracas metropolitan police (about nine thousand men/women) was reorganized
      and purge, during a long and selective process that took over two years.
      Mainly, It was the job of the Metropolitan Major, who travelled a lot to
      know and acquire experiences of other polices around the world. There were
      many advisors during the process, paid by the community.


      regards,
      Luis
