After counting all the high-impact events in which people have been killed, it was observed that so far this year, the day with the most executions was Sunday, January 20, where seven men lost were shot in a multiple murder.

According to the figures, the region with more facts of this type is the 219, same area where the incident mentioned above took place.

On the other hand, the State Attorney General’s Office, the Municipal and State Police, stated that with the different operations they have managed to stop and secure vehicles, drugs and weapons, in order to counteract organized crime.

Comparing to the previous year, January registered 38 executions, but years ago the figure used to be around 5 or 10 a month. In this regard, the governor of the state, Carlos Joaquín, said in an interview that following the instructions of the president, Quintana Roo must adopt a similar security model to the one used in the state of Yucatan to lower crime rates.

So far the three levels of government are working to try to combat organized crime in the state of Quintana Roo, through different operations, under the direction of the new security model, which is known as “Single Command”.
