Goal 2: Improve the effectiveness of the criminal justice procedures and practices
so as to reduce crime and increase the security of the Salvadoran people.
On Track
With USG support, the GOES Public Defender’s Office inaugurated a Family Law Center, Mediation
Center, and Play Therapy Center for children victims of domestic Violence. The Public Defender’s Office
upgraded its reception facilities, case-tracking capabilities, and improved the attention afforded to
facility users. With USG support, the Salvadoran Institute for Women’s Development (ISDEMU)
inaugurated a Victims Assistance intake facility for domestic and sexual violence in San Salvador, which
assists approximately 20 victims/users per day. A newly remodeled Santa Ana Mediation Center opened
to more effectively resolve disputes and reduce caseloads. Two user attention centers with computerized
information desks providing up-to-the-minute information on court hearings opened in San Salvador and
San Miguel. An assessment of the Forensic Medical Institute (IML) of the Supreme Court was completed
and recommendations made to improve efficiency and promote wider use of scientific evidence. The
newly-created statistics department of the Justice Sector’s Technical Unit began working to create an
inter-institutional committee to manage statistics and promote the use of statistics as a fundamental
tool for decision-making. The number of criminal cases solved using alternative dispute processes as of
November 3 is 268, which represents 81% of the cases received. Limitations of the GOES case
management system impeded the collection of data on conviction rates. Nonetheless, data from the
Documentation Center of the Judiciary indicated that convictions increased by 10% in cases where
scientific evidence was utilized.
