The State Government plans to implement technology in Quintana Roo to know who enters the state, as a preventive measure, as is done in Campeche and Yucatan.
Rubén Oyarvide Pedrero, Secretary of Citizen Security, pointed out that, with the technology currently in place, it is not known who enters the state until they arrive in Cancún.
“It is not like in Yucatan or Campeche, where from the borders (the authorities) already know what is coming in, and not here yet,” he said at a press conference held at the C5 facilities in Cancun.
He added that the objective is that with the technology being implemented, all communication systems can be unified and homologated, in order to know what is entering from those States to Quintana Roo and vice versa. The official assured that the studies to determine where such technology will be installed have already been carried out, and the placement of the devices is still pending, which could take place in the next few days.
José de la Peña Ruiz de Chávez, coordinator of the Security and Justice Cabinet of Quintana Roo, commented that these actions are part of the plan presented by Oyarvide Pedrero, in which he established communication with the states of Campeche and Yucatán, with the objective of “making a common front with shared information of what enters the state”.
He pointed out that this project seeks to generate coordination in security matters between the three states that make up the Yucatan Peninsula, in order to “armor it” against crime.
