Baja & Border News Translations: Army and Police are Monitoring Tijuana

Army and Police are Monitoring Tijuana (El Mexicano, 1/16/13 by Said Betanzos)

TIJUANA, BC - Personnel of the Mexican Army and elements of the Federal, State, Municipal and Ministerial Police Forces have joined together to perform prevention operations at various points in the city. More than 350 units and some 150 patrols gathered outside of the Municipal Public Security Secretariat building. Traffic police even blocked access along bulevar Cuauhtémoc and bulevar Sánchez Taboada.

The Secretary of Public Security, Alberto Capella Ibarra argued before a private meeting with military commanders and other corporations, about the details of where they were going to install checkpoints for inspections.

Beginning at 18:40 hours, the patrols and army began to leave in groups to colonias Francisco Villa, Salvatierra and Zona Norte, as well as to bulevares Fundadores and carretera to Playas de Rosarito.

Unofficially authorities confirmed that it is an operation seeking to inhibit the commission of crimes such as vehicle thefts and thefts in all forms, as well as to arrest of criminals based on databases of fugitives from justice.

At each of the points where they settled, military personnel will be responsible for supervision from their vehicles and will take pursuit if any vehicle leaves the road or tries to flee, while officers will oversee vehicles randomly.

Some motorists said they were surprised and believed something bad happened in the colony due to the presence of the military. "The truth is that nothing is wrong, but I thought something had happened. Hopefully continue doing so will ensure fewer thugs on the streets", shared a driver who asked not be identified.

In colonia Salvatierra, a checkpoint was installed right on the main street, so that the patrols and army convoy units were seen by students returning to their homes yesterday afternoon.

At the close of this edition, no extraordinary cases were reported, although municipal authorities reported that in the morning, they will give the results of this first operation implemented by the authorities of the three orders of Government.

At the end of the Decade of the 90´s and early in the last decade in Tijuana, it was common to see military, federal, ministerial and municipal policemen patrolling the streets which was then called a Mixed Group Operations Base. http://www.el-mexicano.com.mx/informacion/noticias/1/3/estatal/2013/01/16/644093/ejercito-y-policias-vigilan-en-tijuana.aspx
