Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — One hundred prisoners from Playa del Carmen have been transferred to the Chetumal Social Reintegration Center of Chetumal. The move took place early Wednesday morning with the 100 inmates being relocated in several police units.

In a statement, the SSP said the move was made to “maintain stability, discipline, governance and a more dignified life due to the existing overcrowding.”

The transfer to the Chetumal Social Reintegration Center was done with help from the Quintana Roo police through the Procedural Police, with the support of officials from the National Defense Secretariat (SEDENA) and the National Guard.
