“We’re bringing Veracruz out of the hole,” said National Security Commissioner Renato Sales last week as he announced a new security strategy for the violence-plagued state.
He revealed in a television interview that the federal government has created a strategy that requires the coordination of the three levels of government and will employ “criminal georeferencing.”
Sales gave as an example of the city of Coatzacoalcos, where the strategy has already been tried. The city had seen an increase in kidnappings but at present there is “not a single kidnapping being reported there. We caught a gang of three or four people that operated in the states of Tabasco and Veracruz, and 33 cases of kidnapping were immediately solved.”
Interim Veracruz governor Flavio Ríos told the newspaper Milenio that he will meet to discuss security with Sales and Interior Secretary Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong this week and seek to reinforce the coordination of the municipal, state and federal governments.
