The state government of Yucatan received from the Government of the United States through the American Consulate in Mérida 5 prefabricated modules to house 20 canine agents of this corporation, as a donation.

The donation was made by the Anti-Narcotics Affairs and Law Enforcement Section (INL) of the United States Embassy in Mexico, as a result of the close ties that the Government of Mauricio Vila Dosal maintains with the authorities of the U.S.

Accompanied by the head of the SSP, Luis Felipe Saidén Ojeda, Vila Dosal received from the United States consul in Mérida, Dorothy Ngutter, the innovative facilities that make Yucatán the first Mexican state to start this type of project that contributes to carrying out more effective police operations, as part of the Bicentennial Understanding bilateral program.

Taking the floor, the United States consul in Mérida, Dorothy Ngutter, congratulated the state authorities for their effort and dedication, since their work has placed the SSP as one of the most effective police forces in the country, as well as highlighted that, what has been achieved in the state’s canine unit, is a reality thanks to permanent dialogue, co-responsibility and mutual collaboration, which opens the doors for Mexico and the United States to further strengthen their shared security relationship.

“I am sure that the collaboration between our nations will continue to produce the best results and the Government of the United States is committed to working together with Mexico in this and other efforts to combat organized crime, take care of our people and strengthen the issue of justice which shows that our collaboration is not static, it adapts and evolves according to the priorities of both countries and our common objectives with programs like this one, with real results and a crucial impact in the fight against transnational crime”, concluded the American Consul Dorothy Ngutter.
