Demand for Immediate Police Intervention in Veiques Crime Wave sign now

We, the citizens and business owners of Vieques Island, Puerto Rico, request immediate help from our government officials to put a stop to the crime wave on our tiny island. In the past year, we have been plagued by gun-wielding and machete-toting masked men who have terrorized us in our homes, our streets and our businesses. We do not feel safe here anymore and we demand an immediate intervention by law enforcement.

It is not enough to send a task force to our island for a couple of days after a crime occurs to give locals and tourists a false sense of security. We need an immediate crackdown on crime and a long-term community policing plan to make Vieques a safe place to live and to visit. We need more full-time police officers on Vieques. We demand that our island receive the same law enforcement resources as every other municipality in Puerto Rico. The amount of crime on this island, based on our number of residents, is greatly out of proportion to the amount of crime elsewhere in Puerto Rico. Crime is clearly out of control on Vieques Island and there are not enough police in Vieques to put a stop to it.

Our island depends on our growing tourism industry and these attacks on both locals and tourists are threatening our entire livelihood. We ask our mayor and our governor to step in and take responsibility and control of this very dangerous situation. The future of Vieques Island depends on their swift response.
