Foot patrols increased along Mahahual beaches to ensure security for vacationers

Mahahual, Q.R. — Foot patrols are part of the stepped-up security being implemented around the state for the Easter holiday season. Armed officers have included Mahahual beaches as part of their increased security strategies to deter crime.

The Quintana Roo Public Security Secretariat (SSP) says they have deployed police in high tourists areas all around the state, including the south.

The increased security is in collaboration with the Coordination Group for the Construction of Peace and Security in Quintana Roo. Uniformed officers are patrolling state beaches with the support of the Secretary of the Navy (Semar) to carry out foot tours.

“The tours in Mahahual and other tourist destinations will be constant during the Easter season so citizens are urged that in case of an emergency in the beach area, to make a report to the 911 hotline and to call 089 for anonymous complaints,” explained Rear Admiral Rubén Oyarvide Pedrero who heads the SSP.

He said that the commitment is to provide safe and peaceful places so that both residents and visitors from all over the world can enjoy their vacation and the natural beauties of Quintana Roo.
