“Until now we remain the same, until now we are going down,” he said.

When questioned about the multiple reports of robberies and assaults that have flooded social networks in recent weeks, Alfaro Gaxiola explained that sometimes the information is false.

“I ask citizens to denounce, to make the call to us, social networks are often false, not everything that appears on social networks is true.”


Due to the wave of reports of assaults and robberies in the Villa Florida subdivision, the secretary was asked if that area has security cameras, to which he replied that they are verifying.

“At the entrance of Avenida Manuel Clouthier we have the cameras, we are verifying if the zoom is close to there, but if we have a camera at the traffic light,” he added.
