Tulum signs agreement to leave Single Police Command

Tulum, Q.R. — A new police management model will ensure the well-being of Tulum residents, says its mayor Marciano Dzul Caamal after the signing of a new agreement.

On Wednesday, Caamal signed an agreement with the Secretary of Public Security of Quintana Roo, Lucio Hernández Gutiérrez, to replace the previous Single Command. The new document brings into force the Agreement for the Coordination of Police Actions in Tulum, replacing the Single Command.

Caamal explained that the new agreement will see additional equipment, training, discipline and strategies against organized crime implemented into the municipal police force.

During their meeting, Caamal stressed that the signature was done to “make official” the new model of police management. The mayor explained that public security in Tulum is being transformed based on teamwork where councilors, deputies, police officers and residents can verify there is an agreement that seeks the high aspirations of the Tulum residents.

Hernández Gutiérrez reported that through this coordination, they will seek to have a single vision of service, which is to achieve a safe Quintana Roo.

“While this is a commitment to collaborate with the state, it is also a commitment that has been giving results in Tulum. I believe that citizens are perceiving that working like this, hand in hand, leads to positive results,” added Caamal.

The new agreement to replace the Single Command was signed after Cammal received authorization from a majority vote of Tulum councilors on November 12.
