Cancun, Q.R– The new 5,600-square-meter C5 or Coordination, Control, Command, Computing and Communication Centre of Cancun has been inaugurated. State governor Carols Joaquin, along with other dignitaries, were on site for the official opening of the new building.
Joaquín says the C5 of Quintana Roo, with state-of-the-art equipment and technological infrastructure, will advance the recovery of peace and tranquility by controlling more than 2,000 security cameras and six detection arches across the state.
The C5 equipment will allow those monitoring the ability to utilize license plate reading cameras to locate vehicles with theft report and some facial recognition and biometric data. It will be used in coordination with Intelligence Units, Cyber Police, elements of the National Guard, SEDENA, Federal Police, Prosecutor’s Office of the State, Quintana Roo Police, Civil Protection, Firefighters, Secretariat of Tourism and organizations that deal with gender violence.
During his speech, Joaquin said that security was one of the most heartfelt demands of the public, adding that while progress has been made, much remains to be done with the participation of people so that security lasts and legality takes root.
The newly constructed building came in at a cost of 376.6 million peso. It includes two levels that consists of a telecommunications room, administrative offices, press and training room, a main operations room for video surveillance, emergency calls to 911 and analysis and intelligence. The building also has a wall of honor to fallen officers.
The new Command Centre was used earlier this month to monitor the June 6 elections.
