After General Government Secretary (Secretario General de Gobierno) Alvaro De la Peña Angulo met with the commander of the 40th Military Zone, based in Guerrero Negro, BCS, General Víctor Hugo Aguirre Serna, the state official announced that work will be done to strengthen the checkpoints located on roads to the north of the state of Baja California Sur.
It is worth mentioning that, so far, these checkpoints have allowed the capture of more than 140 fugitives from justice, which prevents the increase of crime in the region.
He also indicated that the purpose of reinforcement of the secondary road checkpoints is part of the interinstitutional strategy that implements actions aimed at crime prevention, in order to recover the peace and tranquility in Baja California Sur.
“These actions aim to prevent crime, but also directly address those events that undermine social peace and order, that is why operability and intelligence efforts are being doubled” said De la Peña Angulo.
Finally, he pointed out that both the armed forces and security institutions will continue to work to ensure the safety of the people of Baja California Sur, and of those who visit the different tourist destinations across the state.
