In 2014, crime rates in the Mexican Northern State of Tamaulipas surpassed those registered in 2013 by 20%, while high-impact crimes such as murder and kidnapping grew significantly, according to figures from the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Safety System (SESNSP).
The data revealed that crime rates in the state have returned to the levels registered during the administration of former President Felipe Calderón.
Between 2013 and 2014 murders rose 30%, from 30 to 39 murders per 100,000 people. Kidnapping has also grown steadily over the past five years. In 2014 this crime rose 23%, to seven kidnappings per 100,000 people.
Sex crimes are also on the rise. Between 2013 and 2014 they grew by 10% from 25 to 27 per 100,000 people, a level similar to 2012.
Extortion was the only crime that decreased over the last year. In 2013, 6.5 extortions were reported for every 100,000 persons and in 2014 the rate fell to 5.4. However, it is still higher than in the period comprised between 2010 and 2012.
