The Acapulco Destination Marketing Office, in partnership with the State of Guerrero, recently announced a series of new security measures including multi-million peso investments by both the State and Federal government within the police force as well as the launch of a new program entitled Acapulco Seguro.
As part of the new measures, Angel Aguirre Rivero, governor of Guerrero, recently announced an investment from the state, designated for use in the purchase of new police equipment and training in advanced security techniques.
This investment comes after the announcement of 400 new graduates from the federal Police Academy. These graduates will participate in a new, federally funded program, designed to help eliminate corruption within the force.
The Acapulco Seguro program was designed to help visitors feel comfortable and secure during their visit. The program is made up of three sub-programs, Safe Nightlife, Safe Road and Safe Taxi, targeted to provide tourists with a safe way to enjoy all Acapulco has to offer.
