Arrival of National Guard for Cancun, Riviera Maya begins

Cancun, Q.R. — Approximately 2,400 members of Mexico’s newly formed la Guardia Nacional are scheduled to arrive in the state beginning early July.

According to Juan Manuel Ayala Guarro, General Commissar of the Federal Police in Quintana Roo, the 2,400 members will gradually arrive in Quintana Roo to cover the four regions of Benito Juárez, Solidaridad, Cozumel and Othon P. Blanco.

Each region will be distributed 600 members to help existing authorities combat crime. Ayala Guarro says the National Guard will begin arriving July 1, noting that Benito Juarez (Cancun) will be given priority.

He explained that Quintana Roo will have a state coordinator who will report to the secretary of national security who in turn will control work teams that include specialized services of investigation, criminal analysis, information and intelligence.

The Commissar added that they have intelligence operations ready as well as operatives that will provide greater results to what has been done through the Single Command.
