Policia Nacional Cabarete. The police and local government in Cabarete is nothing like what you are used to in North America or Europe. Serve and protect does not apply here in Cabarete. So you need to stay away from trouble and avoid confrontations with the police. There are efforts being made now for change, but it will take time.
Everyone should be aware of what is happening in an area that you are planning to visit. There are local blogs that can keep you up to date about what is going on day by day. If you are planning a trip to Cabarete, visit http://cabaretenoticias.blogspot.com/ so you can keep up with local news.
Cabarete is a beautiful place, you can visit and have a great time. Be aware and be safe.
