The governor has put emphasis on improving security in the Quintana Roo, and for that, he has taken advantage of strategies and technology that help to make protection more efficient.

The new command center is being constructed on land 150 meters x 350 meters and will be responsible for all areas involved in public safety, emergencies and civil protection, as well as logistic support for emergency numbers 911 and 089.
