It will be a civil, specialized, professional and technical body in charge of the protection of the high authorities of the State and the five most important government offices.
The president of the International Sovereignty Commission of the Legislature and militant of the PAIS party Maria Augusta Calle reported that the members of this body could be exceptionally armed. The use of weapons will depend on the authorization of the Joint Command and the Law of Weapons.
In any case, the Public Protection Service is a long-term plan: it will be executed in 10 years. In the first three years, this protection group will represent an average expenditure of about $ 15,186,133 for training, maintenance, and the purchase of equipment, according to the Legislature. Only after the tenth year of existence, the average expenditure will stabilize at $ 16.461,800. The economic projection counts on the favorable opinion of the Ministry of Finance.
