In this sense, Police Chief Elisio Guzmán, the director of Miranda State Police Department, claimed that the skyrocketing murder rate in Venezuela is the result of the Venezuelan State's failure to implement public security policies.
The story could have been different. On April 12, 2014, university students led a march to the Attorney General Office in order to submit concrete requests in regards to security and to demand the release of a group of youngsters detained in Táchira state.
