Cancun, Q.R. — The Secretary of Public Security of Quintana Roo, Jesus Alberto Capella Ibarra, says the installation of security cameras, particularly in the northern part of the state, have been extremely effective in making arrests.
The secretario de Seguridad Pública of Quintana Roo, Jesús Alberto Capella Ibarra, explained that the use of technology, in particular, surveillance cameras, have been vital to achieving many of the recent arrests.
“The institutional articulation, I believe, is the most important point that has been achieved. Every week the governor listens to the accountability of different areas and that allows us to evaluate positive results, analyze where we are failing, and make the necessary adjustments.
“The following week, we evaluate the adjustments”, explained Capella.
He added that to date, there are 760 cameras already installed out of 800.
“The latest major arrests have been made thanks to the support of this technology.” He also says that the problem of insecurity has been taking place for “no less than 25 years” and it was the absence of institutional development with the previous administrations that has allowed the operation of organized crime groups.
“The first thing that Carlos Joaquín did was to develop the state police scheme,” he said adding that while, “it has been a paradise for economic development, it is also been a paradise for people who engage in criminal activities.”
