Members of the Serenazgo can make the equivalent of a citizens arrest. http://www.saberescompartidos.pe/derech ... adano.html
I think the Serenazgo offer a great service, at least in Miraflores. In case of trouble, they arrive in minutes! They are very well organized and integrated with mobile phones. At least some carry video cameras to record trouble makers, and they use all sorts of different vehicles to get around: cars, bikes, motobikes, pickups, and those silly little two-wheeled carts you stand on. There is even a wheelchair force that supervises some of the parks. (kudos to the alcalde on that one). You can even download an App to make it easier to contact them.
