Carlos Joaquín stressed that even though there has been improvement in terms of security in the island, there is still a lot to do in this regard. “Recovering tranquility is a process that takes time, but together we have taken the first steps in the right direction and we are not going to stop.”, he added.

“Currently there are 612 police vehicles; 383 in good conditions in the State Police, of which 315 were acquired in this administration, and there are 229 granted on loan in the different municipalities of the state. In addition, all the state police agents have bulletproof vests, protection helmets and practically all of them are properly trained and armed” indicated Carlos Joaquín.
“Nowadays, we have the base of operations in Chetumal, there is one in Cancun where we expect to have the permanent presence of 300 state police, there is another in Playa del Carmen that will have 200 law enforcement officers and now another in Cozumel, with 15 patrol cars and 100 policemen,” explained the governor.
He also explained that, in terms of security, the gorvenment has been working in a coordinated and direct manner with all the armed forces.
