Jesús Pérez Abarca sworn in as Cancun’s Municipal Secretary of Traffic and Public Safety

Cancun, Q.R. — After an intense week in the municipal police department, Jesús Pérez Abarca has officially been sworn in as the Secretary of Public Saftey for the municipality of Benito Juárez.

With only one vote against Jesús Pérez Abarca, members of city council along with the Secretary of State Public Security Alberta Capella and head of the federal police, Juan Manuel Ayala Guarro, voted in favor of the swearing in of Pérez Abarca for the position.

Pérez Abarca said that he will be in charge of the municipal police under the coordination of the single command.

The swearing in came after an intense week in the municipal police department in Cancun when officers forcefully removed Pérez Abarca from the building after reacting to new internal adjustments inside the organization.

Since then, a total of 19 municipal police officers have been handed restraining orders by the Public Prosecutor’s Office to prevent them from approaching the ratification of the Municipal Secretary of Traffic and Public Safety.

The order is set to last for a period of 60 days while they are investigated for their alleged participation in the aggression against the commander after he was forcefully pushed out of his office.
