President Nicolás Maduro on Monday launched the Safe Homeland Plan, which he described as "special." Including more than 3,000 troops of the National Bolivarian Armed Forces (FABN), this operation is part of the At All Life Venezuela Mission. "We are reviewing all aspects in order to build a country of peace," he said.

From the Honor Courtyard of the Bolivarian Army Military University, Maduro admitted that the most important issue the Venezuelan society has to solve is high crime rates. He said that crime is also hitting other countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Initially, the plan will be implemented in the 79 municipalities with the highest crime rate. "It's up to the FANB, the Army, the People's Guard, the Bolivarian National Police, the Scientific, Criminal and Forensic Investigation Agency, and the Bolivarian Intelligence Service. I am calling you to serve your country. You have to act with more awareness, passion, commitment and love," he told the troops.
