PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Q.Roo — Due to increasing insecurity in the city, specifically in the main touristic areas, the government will implement a project that aims to provide security cameras to places such as Fifth Avenue, from the Primera Sur section to 40th Street.
According to Juan Martín Rodríguez Olvera, general director of the Department of Public Safety, this is a project designed to monitor this worldwide-recognized touristic destination. In order to do so, they are looking for ways to lower economic costs so that the security cameras are installed this year.
“There is a project that is being consolidated by Mayor Cristina Torres in regards to public resources. The problem here is that we do not have enough means for the project to be applied immediately; it is worse knowing that the Fifth Avenue desperately needs this type of surveillance. We want to make this something permanent in the entire sector of that area, making it easier for us to monitor what happens there”, Rodríguez Olvera stated.
However, he did not disclose the amount of money that will be needed nor what number of cameras will be placed, but he emphasized that approximately 140 points in the city will count with this video surveillance system. Likewise, he mentioned that the touristic area is now being patrolled by federal, state, and tourist police.
“We are trying to restore security in the city, so we urge the population to report any incident they are victims/witness of to the emergency number 911, as it is essential to have police elements on time at the crime scene. We are fully committed and by law, we are required to prioritize all situations”, he expressed.
