According to the Attorney General, the training for the Alcaldes and Deputy Alcaldes covered the scope of their work, their rights and responsibilities and the scope of their jurisdiction, including civil and criminal jurisdiction.

The Attorney General says that Saturday’s training and subsequent swearing-in, provided a fitting opportunity for a fresh start for the group of Alcaldes and their Deputies who are now properly appointed.
