President Andrés Manuel López Obrador had his first “mañanera” press conference on Yucatecan soil today Friday September 20th, 2019.
During the press conference AMLO said that, unlike other places in Mexico, in Yucatan, the police forces are not dominated by crime, and attributed in part to that the high security rates prevailing in the state.
At the facilities of Military Air Base number 8, located inn Southern Mérida, the president added that when the police, public prosecutors, judges and magistrates act independently and are not subject to crime, good results are obtained, and such is the case in Yucatán.
“It is important to mark that border line that separates authority from crime,” said López Obrador. “There has to be coordination among all those who participate, to be done jointly as it is being done in Yucatan.”
The president mentioned the good relationship that in the state of Yucatan between municipal, state and federal security forces, including the Army and the Navy.
“There has to be that kind of coordination, because when everyone acts on their own the results are not good,” he said.
López Obrador praised that Governor Mauricio Vila does not delegate the supervision of public safety, but that he addresses the issue personally.
“The governor is not receiving weekly but daily reports of what is happening in the state,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Secretary of the National Defense, Luis Crescencio Sandoval González, said that Yucatan enjoys an “enviable security”, with very low crime rates.
Finally, López Obrador stressed that Yucatán is a state where there is practically no violence, there is no insecurity and it is an example for the rest of the nation to follow. “Yucatan is giving Mexico lessons on how to act to guarantee peace and order to their citizens.”
