The relatives of members of the National Police will go out on January 17 to a sit-in in the Plaza de Bolívar in Bogotá to protest and demand guarantees in the promotion processes of the institution. The reason is that, after presenting the evidence to gain access to a new position, from patrol to sub-intendents, which are carried out by ICFES , some irregularities occurred that left many uniformed officers without the possibility of promotion.
The magazine Semana even gathered testimonies from some police officers who ensure that a possible case of serious corruption in the tests was presented, since the initial results were modified and no one responded for it, nor was the due process of investigation carried out. In addition, with the scores published the second time around, 3,000 patrolmen were left out of the possibility of promotion to subintendent.
