The state of Guanajuato, has four regions of the 17 that have a high crime rate in the country, these areas are home to 16 municipalities where 600 elements of the Navy, Mexican Army and Federal Police will arrive to settle permanently.

Therefore, the Secretary of Security and Citizen Protection, Alfonso Durazo, announced that Guanajuato already has four federal security coordinations for the fight against insecurity.

During the press conference this morning the federal official presented the 17 regional coordinators.

The official of the government of the Republic said that decisions have been made in the federal security cabinet, so that in the regional coordination of the country they face the problems of violence, particularly in intentional homicides.

The four regional coordinations in Guanajuato are:

Irapuato, which will house the municipalities of, Pueblo Nuevo, Romita and Silao.

Salamanca, will coordinate, to Jaral del Progreso, Santa Cruz de Juventino Rosas, Valle de Santiago and Villagrán.

And the municipality of Uriangato  will also be in charge of the municipalities of Cortazar, Moroleón, Salvatierra, Santiago Maravatío and Yuriria.

That is why citizens see more federal forces, this strategy began in Guanajuato, where at some point he had up to 21 intentional daily homicides, today only one third of that figure is recorded, Durazo said.

He also stressed that as the National Guard is approved, there will be more recruitment, more resources and consequently more elements in each region.

While for the airports there is not enough staff, for that reason he called on the Congress of the Union to expedite the approval of the National Guard.

And he mentioned that in the pre-selection of citizenship the Army and Navy has a good approval, while in the municipal and state police, citizens say they believe they are colluded by organized crime.

In the press conference he was asked how the operation was going to stop the person identified as “El Marro”, he mentioned that they have not carried out operations against one or the other, what they seek is to increase the state of force in each of the regions.
