Cancun, Q.R. – More than 6,000 underaged partygoers were prevented from entering Cancun clubs over the recent holiday season thanks to operation Zero Tolerance.
Reinforced security operations were in full affect in Cancun over the Easter break which led to the closure of three establishments and the prevention of 6,500 minors from entering Cancun nightclubs.
The report comes from the Audit department for the municipality of Benito Juarez, who notes that the successful efforts were made in conjunction with the Federal Commission for Protection against Sanitary Risks (Cofepris).
Eduardo Mariscal de la Selva, head of the Audit department explained that the security operation, Zero Tolerance, was implement in various nightclubs around the city including the center, the outskirts and the hotel zone.
The primary goal of the operation was to prevent minors from entering these types of establishments, thus, thwarting the sale of alcohol to the underaged. Cofepris personnel ended the operation with the closure of three establishments, two in the city center and one in the Cancun Hotel Zone, all for allowing access to minors.
Coferpis will continue to monitor entertainment and nightclub businesses with routine inspections to ensure rules and regulations are being adhered to since the municipal government also implement a program to reduce operating hours in nightclubs in the center city of Cancun. The adjusted hours of operation do not apply to establishments in the hotel zone.
