Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — A new police guardhouse has been inagurated at Puerto Morelos that officials say will help with security.
The guardhouse, which was a private investment of around 3 million peso, was inaugurated with the assistance of the municipal president of Puerto Morelos, Laura Fernández Piña and Governor Carlos Joaquín.
“Today is a very important day because we see the result of teamwork, to spare no effort to provide security and protection to those who live here and to those who visit us. That is why, in this work together with the private initiative and Petempich’s neighbors, we have achieved this booth. I want to emphasize that the investment is private contribution,” said Fernández Piña.
The mayor indicated that it is up to the authorities to implement the security strategy 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. “We will complement this work with more lighting. We will also equip it, hand-in-hand with the state government, with video surveillance cameras for a total investment of 3.5 million pesos,” she said.
Carlos Joaquín agreed that the coordinated work between the three levels of government and the private initiative to achieve the peace and tranquility of the state is fundamental.
In his message, the municipal secretary of Public Safety and Traffic, Gumercindo Jiménez Cuervo, reaffirmed his commitment to continue preparing more professional police officers every day so that residents and tourists can feel proud and confident of their officers.
