Tijuana, BC - The Secretary of Municipal Public Security (SSPM) reiterates its call to entrepreneurs, traders and the population in general, to use extreme caution in handling of money and to make deposits or payroll payments securely.

It will be in effect until January 7th and includes greater patrols in seven commercial areas of great affluence: Center Historical, Zona Rio, Macroplaza, Plaza Financiera, Plaza Oasis, Paseo 2000 and Crucero “5 y 10”.

He said the commitment of City Hall, headed by Mayor Carlos Bustamante Anchondo, is that families have peace and security throughout the year, particularly on these dates. Regarding the handling of money, the following recommendations are: When you are going to move money for the payment of bonuses or payroll, contact the head of your police district to coordinate Municipal Police provide security for the transfer. When you transfer funds, it is recommended to frequently change routes and do not always follow the same one, to prevent any setbacks. Also keep information about the movement of money in close professional secrecy for exclusive personnel.
