Governor announces an additional 200 marines to be added to state security

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — Approximately 200 marines are headed for the state of Quintana Roo. Once they arrive, they will be added to the current forces already in place to help with security.

Governor Mara Lezama Espinosa met with the Secretary of the Navy, Admiral José Rafael Ojeda Durán, during a recent trip to Mexico City. They agreed that at least 200 marines will be sent to Quintana Roo in the near future and will join the ongoing intelligence and security projects.

Following the guidelines of the New Agreement for the Well-being and Development of Quintana Roo, the Governor and the Secretary of the Navy agreed to work on building peace for the citizens and visitors of Quintana Roo.

“The security strategy of this government will be twofold: through the reinforcement of technology and working to address the origins of the violence,” added the Governor.

Along with the 200 infantrymen that will join the federal and state elements, a Special Operations team will also be activated in which the Navy will provide support with technology and intelligence.
