Over 50 Cancun and Riviera Maya businesses join initiative to strengthen security

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — More than 50 businesses between Cancun and Riviera Maya have joined an initiative to strengthen security inside their premises. In a statement, the FGE of Quintana Roo explained that they have been working with businesses associated with the National Chamber of the Restaurant Industry (Canirac) Cancun to provide additional security.

The State Attorney General, Óscar Montes de Oca, explained that the idea is to strengthen security actions in order to prevent crimes such as drug dealing and extortion in the state’s various establishments.

“We work in a coordinated manner with the Private Initiative to strengthen actions with the aim of preventing crimes such as drug dealing and extortion, among others.

“Businessmen have full confidence in the actions that we carry out, which will allow crime rates to drop,” said Montes de Oca.

He explained that undercover agents will work in a coordinated manner with the personnel of the establishments of various municipalities of the state in order to be able to react to a possible criminal act.

“We started working hand-in-hand with the members of the National Chamber of the Restaurant Industry (Canirac) Cancun, who provide all the necessary facilities so that the fully accredited agents can carry out their surveillance work quickly and efficiently,” he explained.

To date, the Quintana Roo State Attorney General’s Office, through the Investigative Police attached to the FRAI Group and personnel from various areas of the unit, have issued a total of 108 signs to 54 businesses.

In Cancun, 54 signs were delivered to 27 establishments. In Playa del Carmen, 16 were given to eight businesses and in Tulum, 38 to 19 establishments.

Recently, the State Attorney General, Óscar Montes de Oca, met with members of Canirac Cozumel, to whom he extended the invitation to join the project that seeks to protect the safety of the inhabitants of Quintana Roo and its visitors.
