Yucatan remains the first place with the lowest crime rate in Mexico, which confirms the state as the safest state by registering a rate of 90.21 crimes per 100,000 inhabitants, a figure more than nine times lower than the national level, which is 838.57 crimes per 100,000 inhabitants.
According to the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (Sesnsp), in the crime incidence report for June, Yucatan maintains its good security rates and it is the state with the lowest record in some crimes.
For example, Yucatan is the state with the lowest intentional homicide rate in the country, registering 0.81 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, a rate 12 times lower than the national rate, which is 9.74 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
Our state is also ranked first in the country with the lowest four-wheel vehicle theft rate, registering 0.90 cases, a significantly lower rate than the national average of 36.54 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
#Yucatán se mantiene como el estado más seguro del país, con menor incidencia delictiva, menos homicidios y menor robo de vehículos en lo que va del 2023 y seguimos disminuyendo los casos de extorsión, robos a casa habitación y transeúntes de acuerdo con el Secretariado Ejecutivo… pic.twitter.com/Mmx5stL68g— Mauricio Vila (@MauVila) July 24, 2023
Regarding the crime of extortion, Yucatán is among the first four states with the lowest figure, registering 0.39 cases, which is less than the national figure of 3.85 cases.
It was ranked second with the lowest rate of home robberies and among the first four with fewer robberies to passers-by, registering 2.49 cases and 1.46 cases, respectively, both rates below the national average.
Regarding femicides, a rate of 0.34 cases per 100,000 women was registered, which is why Yucatan was positioned among the first with the lowest rates.
All this is the result of the security policy headed by Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal through the Yucatán Seguro program, which provides the Police with equipment, technology, and strong training to go from 2,248 cameras to 6,775, and from 100 highway arches to 219, according to the state government.
As part of these efforts, the authorities created the Control, Command, Communications, Computing, Coordination and Intelligence Center (C5i). Also, the Police Academy will become a Police University. A modern Bell 429 helicopter, considered the best equipped of its kind in all of Latin America, and speedboats, reinforce Yucatan’s security forces.
