Peru: Callao inaugurates “Ecological Security Boxes”

Isabel Guerra

Four "Ecological Security Boxes" will be inaugurated this Friday by Callao’s Regional Government, aiming to reinforce citizen security and to contribute to environmental conservation.

The ecological security points, located throughout different places in Callao, are part of a master plan aiming to reinforce citizen security, by using non-polluting, small modules.

According to a press release, these surveillance points are made of pieces of wood, with triple ceilings and walls made of recycled PET bottles full of saw-dust, protecting the guard from external temperatures.

This ingenious and new system is being developed by the Regional Management of Natural Resources and Environmental Management, with the initiative of Dr. Alexander Kouri (Mayor of Callao), and has been successfully applied recently in Central America.
