Cancun, Q.R. — Since the inauguration of the C5 by Governor Carlos Joaquín, 2,200 surveillance cameras have been operating, interconnected through fiber optics. Of those cameras,135 are license plate recognition cameras located in Cozumel, Tulum, Solidaridad, Othón P. Blanco, Benito Juárez and Isla Mujeres.
These cameras have made it possible to reduce the levels of violence and regain the trust of the population, reported the Ministry of Public Security (SSP) who says so far this year, 484 arrests have been made and more than 200 vehicles, including motorcycles, recovered.
The C5 is connected with the National Guard, the Mexican Army, the Secretary of the Navy, State and Municipal Police, firefighters, the Red Cross, and also carries out coordinated work with its counterparts in Yucatán and other states.
The C5 of Quintana Roo is classified as one of the most modern in the country and currently covers the Cancun and Puerto Morelos area. However, in a few months, the video surveillance of Playa del Carmen and Tulum will be incorporated to have the entire operation of the main tourist destinations concentrated in this operational room.
Since Quintana Roo is a tourist state, there are bilingual staff 24 hours a day. A representative of the Ministry of Tourism attends to a number for tourist attention, with which can link with embassies to attend to foreigner emergencies.
