The Special Unit to Combat Kidnapping (UECS) of the Interior Secretariat (Segob) announced that the crime of kidnapping is declining, noting that in February 2016, there were 19 percent fewer incidences of the crime than in February 2015.

According to the figures released, there were 137 kidnappings in February 2015, while there were “only” 111 in February 2016.

In February 2015, 100 of the kidnappings were investigated and prosecuted by state governments, and 37 by the federal government. In 2016, 82 cases of kidnapping were reported by the UECS and 32 by the PGR.

Last March 15, the National Secretary of Public Security, Vizcaíno Zamora, and the the head of the National Antikidnapping Coordination (Conase), Patricia Bulgarian Gutiérrez, met with civil society organizations, as well as the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) and the Federal Police, in which they explained the methodology for keeping track of kidnapping and its victims.

The authorities in charge of combatting kidnapping ask the population to report kidnappings, so that impunity will end. The Conase asks citizens to report any crime by calling 088.
