140 security cameras being installed around Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — As part of the emerging strategy undertaken to regain security in the municipality of Solidaridad, 140 cameras are being installed in strategic points starting with the city’s popular Fifth Avenue.

In a statement, the city indicated that the objective is to combat and prevent criminal acts, noting that the cameras that were removed during the last administration are being reinstalled.

The city says that the cameras will be monitored by the Ministry of Public Safety and Municipal Traffic from the Control, Command, Communication, Computing and Quality Center (C5), which will monitor situations in real time while allowing for a reduced response time.

“From the first days of the administration, we reactivated a block of cameras that had been inactive since May 2020, which gave us immediate results in the fight against insecurity,” said Commander Raúl Tassinari, head of the Ministry of Public Safety.

He added that 75 out of 140 new cameras with state-of-the-art technology have already been installed. He says these cameras have the ability to identify people’s faces, vehicles, plates and other different aspects.
