The police need support in this situation, as we are on the front lines of the fight against this invisible enemy. I would like to send a message through you to all citizens, who in these difficult days continue to strictly maintain all the orientations that the government and medicine provide. Let’s protect each other. Your gesture through these masks helps us a lot to protect them in the contact we have with the citizens, not to infect our family members so that the chain is interrupted», marked Jaupi.
