Eight months after taking office as Municipal Public Security Secretary, Julian Leyzaola Perez says the criticisms are wearing and exhausting. He is considering taking another job if indeed the job comes through in another state. "It's a heavy psychological burden taking hits from the people that I support, it lowers my morale and makes me think about the need to retire elsewhere to continue with my personal projects outside of being responsible for the security of Juarez."
He said that in the past two months there's been a flurry of false accusations, insults by the media just wanting to injure him. He said apart from the daily threats received by DTO's, he has to bear the constant "tapping" of other government official, with whom he is supposed to be working in a coordinated manner. There was a smear campaign against him by by some officials who said only succeeded in creating an even riskier environment.
Yesterday during the celebration of the 14th graduation of the police refresher course, Leyzaola said he is considering job offers he has received in at least five states of the Republic. He recounted the accusations and criticism he has received among which are the disappearance of four men, stopping for police clashing with protesters when they were paintings the walls, and previous situations when he worked in TJ, Baja California, when he served as head of police on the border city.
"There are situations in which I was involved but are fraudulent, and I say so because in the six investigation that exist in the city where my name is mentioned in an indictment there isn no direct indictment against me" he said.
Many times he has thought about leaving Juarez to return to the Mexican Army where he worked for 25 years. He feels that the work that he developed has not been well appreciate by some groups in society and therefore he is considering retiring from Juarez where he has succeeded in changing the image of the corporation and has detained a large number of people from who committing crimes.
He is considering proposals received in recent days Guerrero, Veracruz, Nuevo Leon, Durango, and Quintana Roo where he offered to take charge of security due to high rise of violence. He said that his decision will take a few days and the first to know will be the Mayor Hector Murguia Lardizabal, who invited him to the city and always gave him support. He said his work has been focused on making changes to improve surveillance in the Chihuahua District which is scheduled to start operating a new scheme Dec. 30.
