With the aim of doubling the security of citizens, the Directorate of Public Safety and Municipal Roads, will continue with the operations in this Christmas period, strengthening the prevention routes daily by the colonies, squares and shopping centers to safeguard the integrity of citizens and tourists who visit Puerto Vallarta.

Deputy Director of Operations, Rene Mendez Vasquez, informed that the surveillance and prevention operations "Clean Beaches", "Safe Vallarta" and "Zero Tolerance", this week in our city, will cover the different sectors of Puerto Vallarta in the northern and southern areas 24 hours a day.

As a result, 33 people were arrested during the week, three of them women, who were brought before the municipal judge on duty for various administrative offences.

These were: drinking alcoholic beverages on the streets, drug consumption, sleeping in public areas, lack of morals, disturbing the order and scandalizing the public, showing an aggressive attitude and disturbing the passers-by, as well as not obeying the guidelines of the authorities.

From 4 to 6 units participate in these operations, depending on the surveillance sector, under the direction and supervision of the area manager, along with the elements assigned to support the operation, which varies according to the participating units.

These operations cover the beaches of the tourist zone, El Centro, Colonia Emiliano Zapata, 5 de Diciembre, Paso Ancho, El Caloso, Alta Vista, El Pedregal, La Floresta, Ramblases, Jardines, Primavera, etc.

Also in the colonies of the delegations, like Palmar del Progreso, Coapinole, San Esteban, Vista Hermosa, Volcanes, Joyas del Pedregal, Villa Las Flores, Ixtapa and La Desembocada.

According to the ordinance, they will continue to be implemented daily in the neighborhoods without lowering their guard so as not to give way to the laziness and bad living that will lead to illicit acts and crimes, safeguarding the integrity of the citizen and the tourists, as has been the premise of Mayor Arturo Davalos Peña.
