Because safety is important to all of us. ”

With the presence of the municipal president Perla Tun Pech, the governor Carlos Joaquin indicated that when he received the administration, there were only 25 functional police cars in the State Police, 18 bulletproof vests in adequate condition and the corporation had hardly any presence in the state capital, Chetumal.
