Yucatan achieved the lowest rates of high-impact crime in Mexico in February 2017, according to results published by Semáforo Delictivo Nacional. These results reflect the high level of security and the climate of social peace prevailing in the state, according to the citizens group.
According to the state-by-state study by this citizens initiative, Yucatan obtained a total of six green lights when registering the levels of least impact of all Mexico in items like abductions, extortions, robberies of vehicles and houses, injuries and rapes.
Based on official sources and analysis of specialized firms such as Lantia Consultores, Yucatan was ranked last with the lowest number of homicides with an average of 2.4. In the first three places are Colima with 84.4, Guerrero with 62.4 and Sinaloa with 39.2.
In the section on kidnappings, it was specified that Yucatan did not record any such events during the second month of 2017. In contrast, Tamaulipas, Tabasco and Zacatecas had indicators of 4.4, 3.6 and 2.4, respectively.
On a monthly basis, Semáforo Delictivo Nacional measures the standards related to peace in Mexico, fueled by citizen denunciations. Likewise, it draws on the transparency efforts of the authorities, with the purpose of promoting good governance through organized and informed community pressure.
