Felipe Carrillo Puerto ejidos donate land for construction of new police station

Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Q.R. — A group of ejidos have donated a parcel of land to the municipality for the construction of a police station. An agreement was signed Saturday between the ejidos and municipal officials that will see the station built in the town of Muyil.

Muyil, also known as Chunyaxché, is in need of a police base. The agreement signed over the weekend will provide the 1,200 square meter space needed to build a station that will be run by the SSC (Secretaría de Seguridad Ciudadana).

“The town of Muyil will have a new police base run by the SSC to reinforce security,” the police agency reported.

“With the aim of continuing to work on building peace in Quintana Roo, Rear Admiral Julio César Gómez Torres, Secretary of Citizen Security, received title that certifies the donation of land in the town of Muyil.

“In this place, a new base of operations for the State Police will be built that will allow for a greater presence of police who will have more and better tools to carry out their functions in addition to reinforcing crime prevention and combating crime actions,” the SSC explained in a statement.

Part of the need is due to area development. According to Torres, additional police are needed due to the increase in people with the opening of the Tulum Airport and the scheduled opening for the remaining Tren Maya sections in August.

In a separate project, a State Police barracks for 200 is scheduled to be built in Felipe Carrillo Puerto in coming months. Some of the officers from that new barracks will be assigned to the new station in the community of Muyil.
