Tulum, Q.R. — Nearly two dozen navy personnel are expected to arrive in Tulum next month to help tighten public security. On Thursday, Tulum Mayor Diego Castañón Trejo, said at least 20 navy personnel are expected.
In a brief interview, the mayor said the municipality will continue to ask for help if necessary to maintain peace, which is the reason they have requested the 20 navy personnel for September.
“We are going to continue bringing in help even though everything is good,” he said. “We cannot let our guard down when it comes to security. We have to work 24 hours a day.”
His request came during the same week the municipality of Tulum began hiring new police recruits. On Monday, the municipality opened job offerings for between 15 and 20 new officers. The successful candidates will eventually be integrated into the corporation’s current 222 officers.
