Cancun Area: Attorney General admits the state is unable to cope with the increase of crime

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat from Reforma



The Office of the Attorney General of Quintana Roo is unable to meet the unusual increase in violence in the State.

In a private meeting with local legislators, Attorney General Miguel Ángel Pech acknowledged that the institution lacks trained and evaluated ministerial police, specialized equipment and greater resources to deal with crime.

"Each Prosecutor has up to 800 cases, we even have 60 employment openings  available for ministerial agents, but there is a lack of trained personnel to fill the vacancies," Pech said, and according to legislative sources.

He also warned that, even if those 60 positions were filled, the staff would still be insufficient.

It is a complex situation", summarized the Prosecutor.

The meeting with legislators took place after the execution of eight people in less than 24 hours, in Cancun last Tuesday.

Homicides have increased 133 percent from January to July, when there were 395 preliminary investigations for that crime; in the same period of 2017, 169 were counted.

    1. Can’t be as bad as Acapulco. The poor restaurants. Anyone who does go is more likely to stay at the hotel.

    1. See, that’s my issue. If you are a tourist and minding your business, you should be able to roam free. Why do we have to give up our freedom? The Mexican gov. can eliminate this violence but it doesn’t seem like they want to. Excuses are cheaper and easier I guess.

    1. Former PRI governor and EPN friend Roberto Borges fights charges in prison from Panama while his associates fight the newcomers in Cancún, and they don't give a fack about anybody's business while they fight for survival.

    2. Borges was extradited to Mexico in January.

  4. They should just leave protection to whatever cartel is in control of the area. They are better equipped and know the criminal layout

  5. "we even have 60 employment openings available for ministerial agents, but there is a lack of trained personnel to fill the vacancies," Well, pay them real money instead of peanuts and you will get good people. Don't forget the old saying "You get what you pay for" if you don't pay you don't get. Perfect common sense dictates that if those needed people are paid very well the positions will be filled, the tourist will come and bring billions to spend but if you let the criminals take over, the country will lose billions. Common business sense.

    1. @246: u da boozo dude! It has never worked in the past and it will never work in the future.

      The underlying cause is poverty!

      Poverty makes the profitability of illicit drug irresistable and enables corruption to thrive.

    2. Marshall plan worked in Europe until recent attacks by Americans
      --Martial Law has not worked for most Mexicans in Mexico and more than half a million Mexicans have died thanks to Mexican government need to justify 3 billion dollars a year from US government who engaged Mexico in their "war ON drugs", they paid for the militarization of police operations that unleashed the melitary on Mexicans Colombia style...
      By the way, Colombia is bent on taking Alvaro Uribe Velez to trial, LOL, EL UBERRIMO IN COURT, how things change.

  8. Even travelling from the airport to the tourist areas of Cancun runs a serious risk. If my taxi happened to run into a police 'checkpoint' i would start to feel a tad uneasy. Who knows who or what lies behind that uniform. It could be Goodnight Irene for all i know. Adios. Never to be seen again. Sad to say but Cancun, like vast swathes of Mexico, is pretty much a high risk place to visit. Borderland Beat is the closest i will ever get to lovely Mexico.

    2. “Who knows who or what lies behind that uniform.”

      “What” seems a tad excessive. XD

      I have no reasons to think that aliens or mutants or reptilians have taken over Mexico jajaja.
