Shoppers in search of bargains in downtown Merida stores during this weekend’s “Buen Fin” sales will see a major public safety operation as streets are kept under strict surveillance in the central trade corridor.
Federal, state, and city of Merida police and employees of companies involved in the “Buen Fin” program (Nov. 13-16) will receive an advance payment of part of their bonuses, as the police intend to prevent assaults and robberies to passersby.
A total of 300 police officers will maintain constant vigilance to ensure the security of merchants and shoppers who come to take advantage of the discounts offered by the “Good Weekend” program.
Authorities said in a statement that there will be special surveillance in the areas of banking, ATMs, and the points of greatest concentration of people, in order to inhibit any criminal act.
Police will conduct bike patrols at different points of downtown, to support security. There will also be K9 officers to tour the areas of greatest concentration of shoppers. The surveillance and traffic control will also be supported by police officers on motorcycles and bicycles.
Authorities indicated that in case of being victim of a crime, citizens immediately should report it to the nearest police or the emergency number 942-0060, which operates 24 hours, and avoid confronting criminals, as they may be armed.
