The agreement between the LIDOM and the National Police will allow each of the stadiums to set up a stand of the law enforcement institution, so that police personnel can offer the necessary details to young aspirants about the advantages of being police officers at the present time.

“For LIDOM and for me personally, it is a great satisfaction to be able to contribute to an institution of such importance and responsibility as the National Police,” said the head of LIDOM.
On his side, Major General Alberto Then said that the institution will allocate the necessary personnel and logistics so that the Dominican family can enjoy its main pastime, baseball.
