STATEMENT BY DEPUTY SUAREZ SESMA JESUS DURING THE APPEARANCE OF THE SECRETARY OF PUBLIC SAFETY
April 24, 2014 | Author admin
With your permission Deputy President.
Doctor Jesus Rodriguez Almeida, Secretary of Public Security of the Federal District, whether you welcome to this Honorable Assembly.
Public safety is one of the most precious goods that society wants to live and is also a major concern of the Green Party in Mexico City.
We understand the complexity of the problem and the different variables that generates this serious social deterioration that we find ourselves living.
Currently, the company requires us better institutions, secret weapons and rigorous selection mechanisms and control. We also demand clear procedures and attached to law and effective, prompt, honest and committed to citizen action.
We know the size of their responsibility and that is why this bench will continue to strongly support programs and efforts made since you directed the Secretariat to improve the security situation which we live.
Lightning operating, for example, is a system that celebrates the Green Party because it allowed inhibit crimes that carry people riding motorcycles.
From March 2013 to February this year, were sent to the various deposits 58 000 626 vehicle units, 52 firearms were seized and have been made available to the Public Prosecutor about 986 people.
Therefore, we encourage you to step up operations in the five districts with the highest rate of this problem: Cuauhtémoc, Iztapalapa, Gustavo A. Madero, Venustiano Carranza and Benito Juárez.
Also, we wish to express our congratulations to the Head of Government and you Dr. Almeida, for the successful implementation of “Passenger Security” program.
Every day thousands of people are in the need to use public transport to travel to their place of work or home, and see with great concern that the violence and assaults with firearms still occur. However, we recognize the hard work and progress that the Secretariat had to charge on this issue.
According to the report we did get, the raids so far this year, 811 people have been submitted to the public prosecutor. Reduced theft aboard minibus in 13.3%; robbery managed taxi board reduced by 44%; but within the Metro theft increased by 5.6%.
I’m sure Mr. Secretary, who will not back down and step up efforts to strengthen monitoring of this important means of transportation, as well as the Centers for Modal transfer, in order to detect white arms, drugs and persons to commit crimes.
On the other hand, Mr. Secretary, the Green Party welcomes the signing of the Inter-Agency Coordination and Collaboration with the Institute for Prevention and Treatment of Addictions in Mexico City (IAPA), because we are convinced that it is very encouraging to see that the institution participates in the preparation and operation of public policies to prevent the use of psychoactive substances to prevent the commission of crimes. Otherwise talcomolo proposed by some, would simply bring the City into an abyss.
It is therefore important that the Secretariat in charge continued fighting this phenomenon in coordination with the Special Unit Against Drug Trafficking and the Attorney General of the Federal District, and that in the period covered by this report 31 000 435 referrals were made to the Public Ministry of Common Law, 8000 of which 906 were for crimes of high impact.
We also know the Green Party on the Protocol of action implemented by the Ministry responsible for the capital’s police address the allegations of animal abuse and compliance with the provisions of the Law on Animal Protection and Rescue insurance for when they are at risk.
However, we are also aware that the Brigade Animal Surveillance lacks the infrastructure and resources to address complaints by this crime, so we are committed to give it a bigger budget, yet we ask duplicate efforts, all to monitor, in coordination with the competent authorities, establishments where animals sold in poor condition and to hear cases of cruelty and maltreatment.
In this issue we mentioned that 5000 320 allegations of abuse and / or neglect were seen in the possession and care of animals and further work is in the rescue of those animals that are at risk and jeopardize safety of the inhabitants of Mexico City. And since we have a system whereby we receive complaints and channel it to the authorities, has the Green Party in this arduous task.
In another vein, Mr. Secretary, we refer to the recovery of land and nature reserve areas.
These actions undertaken at the direction of the Head of Government, promote the rehabilitation of abandoned places, in order to strengthen security and prevent the commission of crimes, and ensure peaceful coexistence and Spaces for conducting recreational activities. In that sense, the Green Party has also made concrete to improve surveillance and protection of these areas, with the intention that they are not subject to frequent invasions and consequently deterioration detriment of all the capital proposals. We also hope to have your support to take forward these proposals.
But one issue that we share is of great importance for the future of the city are young, and their safety is paramount to guarantee a safe and healthy living, and to generate them opportunities for development. Regarding this issue, we know the actions implemented as “Safe Backpack” where students are prevented from entering school buildings white and firearms and narcotics. Here we must not lower our guard.
Finally we must say that, in general terms and according to their report, the crime rate in Mexico City declined 15.6% so far this year. In 2013, a decrease of 12.4% percent and it had the last four years have seen a decline of 40 percent in the City.
All this largely due to the installation of surveillance cameras, coordinated, the operating rake Shield Center program, a thousand patrols were purchased last year and the cooperation of the capital to denounce through 066 job.
First of all, Mr. Secretary, we believe that it has responded to specific problems to various City events, but there are still many that remain outstanding and unfortunately continue to hurt the people of Mexico City.
We encourage you to continue until the last day of his term as before, with significant advances to ensure safety to restore confidence to the capital.
Count on our full support.
For your attention, thank you very much.
That’s all I Deputy Chairman.
