Being a soldier in the Dominican Republic does not necessarily mean that you're trained all day and get ready for war. 60 percent of the active duty personnel of the Dominican armed forces are used to guard non-military sites.

The duties oh Dominican Soldier, among other things, include guarding the border, guarding certain strategic points on the main roads and arteries, guarding the forests of the Dominican Republic, guarding the National Banks and gobernment and facilities. And also guarding high-ranking officials.

With all the different things that the Dominican military is used for, the police has more time to do police work.

Compare that to Haiti where the police does pretty much everything including serving as bodyguards for wives and girlfriends Haitian politicians.
