Chetumal, Q.R. — The governor of Quintana Roo has made an adjustment to his cabinet with the replacement of the Secretary of Public Security for the state.

Governor Carlos Joaquín has announced the new head of public security, Jesús Alberto Capella Ibarra, after the resignation of Rodolfo del Angel Campos, who served in the position for two years. In the change of command, Carlos Joaquín thanked del Angel Campos for his professionalism, loyalty and commitment during his time.
