David Smilde, an analyst who has studied citizen security in Venezuela for the Washington Office on Latin America, said Maduro may also be seeking to take advantage of public outrage to roll back a civilian police reform started by the late President Hugo Chavez and instead expand the military's role in policing the streets.
Smilde said one sign of a militarized approach was this week's naming of retired army Gen. Ronald Blanco la Cruz as head of Venezuela's top police academy.
