Tulum mayor says he supports article reform to add Mexico army to public streets

Tulum, Q.R. — Tulum mayor Marciano Dzul Caamal says he is in support of reforming the article that would see Mexico’s army monitor public streets. On Friday, Caamal said he supports the reform of the fifth transitory article of the Political Constitution of the United Mexican States regarding the National Guard, which proposes the permanence of the Armed Forces in Public Security work until 2028.

From Chetumal, where he was interviewed, the mayor pointed out that thanks to the support of the Government of Mexico, in terms of security, progress has been made with the presence of Armed Forces and the effective coordination of the Municipal Police.

“When it comes to security issues, we are interested because we are working on it,” he said adding that Tulum City Council is endorsing the armed forces in the streets because they have helped to reinforce security.

“We have close to 300 municipal elements, however, the presence of the Navy, the National Guard and those involved is important,” he said.

Dzul Caamal indicated that the coordination and respect between the security forces have allowed tangible progress for Tulum. “What I can tell you is that from the time we assumed responsibility until today, there have been great advances and I think this progress is the shared feeling of the citizens of Tulum,” he said.

He clarified that his administration never joined the single command. It was an inter-institutional coordination and thus the functionality of Security in Tulum projects.

Dzul Caamal clarified that the Government of Mexico has provided essential support in intelligence and security to achieve peace and tranquility for families and tourists in the municipality.
