Goal 4: Facilitate economic growth by ensuring El Salvador’s labor force is protected from crime while transiting to and from work, and ensuring that the public transportation service providers serving the labor force are protected from crime. On Track The Public Transportation Task Force has started investigating public transportation crime cases and will become a formal unit in the PNC. All police and prosecutors in the unit have been vetted. A procedures manual for the Task Force was drafted and a training plan was initiated to improve investigation and interview techniques, analysis and surveillance, and personal defense. In addition, the GOES continues to improve the transparency and accountability of the Vice Ministry of Transportation (VMT). The VMT’s Transparency Office, established with USAID assistance, is now fully functioning and to date 129 of a total of 130 requests for information have been fulfilled. The VMT is also updating its procedures manual to reduce corruption and improve efficiency. A citizen oversight group, monitoring the transparency of the Ministry of Public Works construction of the new Integrated System of Public Transportation in the Metropolitan Area (SITRAMSS) delivered its final report to the authorities, with recommendations for improvement.
