"I must begin by thanking you for the work that you carry out every day throughout the national territory in areas of greater complexity due to problems of crime, illicit economies, situations of violence, among other situations. The Defense and Security Policy in the strategic areas of intervention seeks to generate the conditions of security and coexistence that preserve and strengthen national interests, the independence, sovereignty and unity of the State, while restoring and strengthening legality, promoting entrepreneurship, economic development which serve to build a society with equity with full recognition of Human Rights. There is where the Comprehensive Action comes in, it is a fundamental tool of strategic transformation based on identifying that the main threat to security in Colombia are the empty spaces of the institutional coverage".
