Mayor inaugurates first revamped Isla Mujeres police station

Isla Mujeres, Q. R. — To reinforce the security of island families and tourists who visit Isla Mujeres daily, Mayor Atenea Gómez Ricalde announced the reopening of one revamped police station.

The small community station was part of a construction and rehabilitation project that began earlier this year. Several police stations are being revamped and made available for public access of which two are being built new. One on the mainland and the other on the island.

On Thursday morning, she supervised the work of the Police Booth that is being built on the road to Punta Sam, a road that leads to the hotel zone of Costa Mujeres. The Mayor announced that there are great advances in its construction, so it will soon be ready to be inaugurated and start operating.

Likewise, she highlighted that new booths are being built and existing ones are being rehabilitated with the firm purpose of improving security in both areas of the municipality.

On Thursday, she was on hand for the reopening of the police station in the Salina Grande neighborhood in the Insular Zone.

In June, Ricalde announced the construction of a new police house for officers. The house is on the mainland and is to be used by Public Safety and Traffic officers. There, they will be able to “rest, eat and clean up to continue their workday in the best possible conditions,” Ricalde said.
