It is the first time these 3 state governments work together not only in surveillance but in tour assistance, environmental protection, fighting fires  and providing legal assistance to travelers in case of theft or emergency.

Among the specific actions announced, five police bases were established at different geographic points in the states of Campeche , Yucatan and Quintana Roo as part of the Coordinated Peninsular Operation Plan.

In these operations, the Department of Defense, the Navy, CISEN (Center for Research and National Security), PGR (Attorney General of Mexico) and the Federal Police are involved.

They also agreed to conduct campaigns to prevent accidents in all the Peninsula, promoting respect for: traffic signals, speed limits, not driving while intoxicated, not using cell phones while driving, not litter or throw cigarette butts on roads and use the seat belts, etc. Also the governments stated the importance to keep the beaches clean.

The final agreement was to provide adequate attention to tourists, improving the service and attention at tourist stops, information modules and electronic media in these three states.
