With the aim of deterring or eradicating criminal practices that threaten the integrity of citizens and visitors, Puerto Vallarta continues to carry out the “Safe Vallarta” operation.

Commissioner Jorge Antonio Hernández Valencia, said that surveillance and crime prevention actions have been reinforced in colonies such as 5 de Diciembre, El Cerro, El Caloso, Buenos Aires, Benito Juarez, Emiliano Zapata, Olas Altas and Amapas, where several people have been arrested for various administrative offenses, from public intoxication to road violations.

Police issue warnings to people who are on the street in groups, drinking alcoholic beverages or scandalized, and in case of reoffending, they are arrested and transferred to the municipal jail.

“With these actions we remain firm in our commitment to work for a safer and more just city, as instructed by the municipal president, Arturo Dávalos Peña, with the call to continue redoubling efforts and work hand in hand with citizens in preventive actions in all the colonies of the port “, emphasized Hernández Valencia.
