ResumenExplotando las variaciones espaciales y temporales en el numero de bienes incautados a las organizaciones criminales, se estiman modelos de efectos fijos regionales del aumento en el númerode propiedades confiscadas sobre las principales tasas de crimen. En Colombia, desde finales de 2002 las estrategias de seguridad cambiaron, y como resultado, los efectos sobre los delitos resultaron significativos y negativos. Por un lado hubo una reducción en los delitos cometidos por el crimen organizado, incluyendo la guerrilla, los paramilitares y los narcotraficantes, pero por el otro, los delitos cometidos por criminales comunes no parecen haberse reducido en la misma magnitud.First version of the política de seguridad democrática:were the objectives accomplished?Exploiting spatial and temporal variations in the number of seizures from criminal organizations,I estimate regional fixed effects models of the increase in the number of properties confiscated on the main crime rates. Since 2002 security strategies changed, and the resulting effects on crime are mostly large, negative and significant. On the one hand, there was a clear reduction in crimes commonly committed by criminal organizations, including guerrillas, paramilitaries and drug traffikers, but on the other, no significant effects were found on crimes committed by common criminals in the urban areas.
