(Acapulco, JG 11 July) In a statement made during the weekend, Acapulco Mayor Manuel Añorve Baños recognized that the violence and lack of a sense of security have negatively impacted the development of tourism in Acapulco. Shortly, he said, he will reveal a security initiative, at all three levels of government, which will help reactivate the nightlife of this tourist destination. He added that law enforcement already monitors the younger people in their nighttime activities in the discos, bars and restaurants, but needs to do more in the way of security. He lamented the fact that the private sector has been so negatively affected by the lack of security, with the closing of businesses due to the financial crisis, and then more so because of the lack of security caused by common criminals.

“In spite of the constant acts of violence,” he said, “I can reassure you that this government will not stop taking part in security operations. In this high summer season, this will include more joint actions with the Navy, Army and the Federal Police.”
