Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - At a ceremony held at the Regional Police Academy this week, Mayor Arturo Dávalos Peña thanked 16 retiring citizen security and traffic police officers for the work that they carried out every day during their more than 20 years of service to the people of Vallarta.
He also congratulated the 12 operational officers who, based on their efforts and merits, were promoted to the next level through a transparent and fair process based on the evaluation of their files by the Police Career and Honor and Justice commissions.
"Today I want to give recognition to all of this body of police, transit, operations and tourism officers. Thank you very much, my friends and colleagues, I thank you infinitely for your dedication, professionalism and willingness to always be there, and without a doubt we will continue to redouble our efforts so that each day is better," said the mayor.
During the ceremony, Dávalos Peña announced the publication of a second call for promotion, in which all who wish to participate can enroll. And, in an unprecedented show of support, he also announced that in the month of November, all operational officers will be provided with construction materials to improve their homes.
In addition, the municipal president officially presented the Citizen Security Directorate with two vehicles equipped as mobile offices, which will bolster the first responders' work within the New Criminal Justice System. The new vehicles were acquired with federal resources from the FORTASEG 2017 program, with an investment of more than one million 200 thousand pesos.Press release translated and edited by Lorena Sonrisas for BanderasNews.com.
