On December 10th, Puerto Peñasco mayor Kiko Munro officially marked the launch of the 2020-21 Guadalupe – Reyes Safety Campaign.
The December-January operative aims to strengthen safety measures across the city during the holiday season via increased patrols and awareness campaigns.
The 28 day strategy will run from December 10 through January 6. (The name “Guadalupe-Reyes” stems from the tradition of celebrating the Virgen de Guadalupe on Dec. 12th, and Kings’ (Reyes) Day on Jan. 6th)
Agencies and departments involved in the holiday security measure include: the local police, Civil Protection Unit, fire department, Red Cross, Mexican Marines, Mexican Army, Federal Police, State Preventive Police, Sonoyta Military Garrison, Tourism Auxiliary Unit, the Youth Patrol, and other rescue units.
