The permanence of these bodies is practically approved by the elected governor Américo Villarreal Anaya, since three weeks ago in a meeting they held with him and the transition team they assured them that they endorsed their continuity.

Tampico, Tamaulipas. – The Citizen Security and Justice advisory councils of Tamaulipas cannot disappear for the sole reason that one state government will end and another will begin since the business perspective is that these citizen bodies continue to operate so that levels of tranquility continue to prevail in the entity as until now they have, declared the Liaison coordinator of said instances in the State, Luis Apperti Llovet.

He added that the permanence of these bodies is practically approved by the elected governor Américo Villarreal Anaya, since three weeks ago in a meeting they held with him and the transition team they assured them that they endorsed their continuity.

” Not only do I see the conditions (so that they do not disappear), we are working for it, we already had a meeting with the governor-elect and his team three weeks ago, and you see the declarations, the intention is that citizens continue to contribute what they do which is to be working hand in hand with the experts at the end of the day ,” he specified.

” The issue is very clear, we need to continue advancing on security issues, we cannot go back, that is something established, and the commitment that we heard and that was made public by the elected governor is that this is going to be the trend ,” he added.

In this sense, the also former president of the Council of Business Institutions of the South of Tamaulipas warned that as far as the future of the State Police is concerned, what they are interpreting with the future arrival of the State Guard, is that it is only a semantic definition, that is, that the corporation as it is is not going to disappear nor will it start from scratch in these matters that interest the community, mainly in strengthening it.


Thus, he quoted, what is really interested in the business community is that the foundations laid in public security in recent years are maintained, expanded and strengthened for the benefit of the entire Tamaulipas community so that insecurity does not be once again a concern of the productive sectors, since these adverse scenarios were already overcome several years ago.

” From our point of view, it is pure semantics, if it is called the State Guard, Accredited State Police or Police ‘X’, it continues to perform the same function, I think it is important to maintain the bases, single command, centralized, so that in that way more difficult for municipal corporations to infiltrate, which is what has traditionally happened ,” he insisted.

” Continue asking citizens for their broad participation in denouncing crimes, not allowing what happened to us 10 years ago to continue happening; the work of the Citizens’ Roundtables at the national level has been very clear, we are going to work from our trenches, I insist , without being experts, we are the ones who bring the information and generate a table where dialogue, trust and programs are maintained, that coordination is success , “he reiterated.
