Preventive actions will be implemented with presence in municipalities and highways for the security of the area.

After analyzing in the Executive Commission of the State Security Council the situation in the neighboring state of Colima, authorities from the three levels of government agreed to establish a coordination mechanism between the Mexican Army, the National Guard, the Secretariat of the Navy and the State Security Secretariat, announced Governor Enrique Alfaro. The governor confirmed that he has already communicated with the governor of Colima, Indira Vizcaino Silva, with the objective of expressing Jalisco's solidarity and support in these moments that her state is going through. "Today we talked about the state of Colima, I had the opportunity to speak with the governor of Colima, a sister state, the message we have to give is one of coordination, we are not talking about armoring, it is about adjusting strategies to ensure the free transit of goods, the safety of citizens. We decided at the table to review this strategy, we are going to reinforce our presence in some municipalities", explained the President.

PREVENTIVE ACTIONS Alfaro Ramírez was emphatic in reiterating that more than a reinforcement in the borders with Colima, what will be implemented are preventive actions with presence in municipalities, communities and highways to maintain security in the area, as well as the free transit of people and merchandise between both entities. "We want to send a clear message that we are aware of the issue, that there is coordination with the government of Colima to face together a challenge that is not of one state or another, it is a shared challenge, just as we have done it in a very effective way under the coordination of the Mexican Army in the borders with Zacatecas and Michoacán, now we are going to review it in the case of Colima", he explained. In total there are 7 Jalisco municipalities that border Colima, Cihuatlán, Cuautitlán de García Barragán, Tolimán, Tonila, Tuxpan, Pihuamo and Zapotitlán de Vadillo. Regarding the alleged theft of trailers on the border with Colima, the Governor denied that there are any complaints on the subject, and urged those who have knowledge of any facts of this nature to inform the respective authorities. "There are no complaints in the Attorney General's Office or in the State Attorney General's Office, what we are going to do is to be aware that if they have any information that they have to tell us, they should do it through the institutional channels", he concluded.
