Two new Municipal Police offices were recently inaugurated in the neighborhoods el Centro and Oriente, through an investment of nearly $289,606 pesos from the Program for Sonoran Social Participation (Pasos).
With the direct participation of the neighbors of both neighborhoods, mayor Heriberto Rentería Sánchez, accompanied by functionaries, cut the traditional ribbon to kick off the operations of the two new Public Safety extensions, located in strategic points in the city.
The first station is located on Vicente Guerrero St. and Serdán Ave., next to the old cemetery.
Funds of up to $138,428 pesos were invested in this station.
The second post, representing a similar investment of $150,977 pesos, is located on 12 de Octubre Ave. and Abelardo L. Rodríguez St. in the Oriente neighborhood.
The local mayor stated that with these police stations they are working to fulfill the commitment his administration had made some time ago with those living in the neighborhoods to benefit from the projects.
Heriberto Rentería called on the community to care for the facilities and assure that they work well, as they cover important points in the city where problems of insecurity had arisen.
Alfredo Meza Hernández, Pasos director for Peñasco, reported that within the neighborhoods where the new police stations were built they have already formed committees, Pasos por la Seguridad (Pasos for Safety), with the local community members. These committees will monitor the correct use of the facilities.
The Pasos director further added they have implemented a neighborhood watch program, giving cell phones to each of its members in an effort to contribute to safety so that they call in illegal and antisocial conduct to the 066 emergency number.
He determined that in this manner they are taking sure steps towards maintaining a safe Peñasco, which is an objective of the current local administration.
María del Socorro Marín, President of one of the Pasos safety committees, gave thanks for the support in making the representation of police within the neighborhoods a reality and took advantage of the opportunity to ask the Mayor that he not set aside those problems that are still pending resolve, in particular within the Oriente neighborhood.
