Announcement 1887

In order to guarantee the safe transfer of persons deprived of liberty, the Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC) of Mexico City delivered 25 transfer vans to reinforce the operational capacities of the Undersecretariat of the Penitentiary System.

In a ceremony held at Base Plata, in the Iztapalapa municipality, the Secretary of Citizen Security, Mr. Pablo Vázquez Camacho, accompanied by the Head of Government of Mexico City, Dr. Martí Batres Guadarrama, indicated that “these 25 vans for transporting persons deprived of liberty are the result of a joint effort between the Government of Mexico City, through the Secretariat of Citizen Security and the Government of Mexico through the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System, since they were acquired with federal resources from the Public Security Contributions Fund, FASP, with an outlay of almost 63 million pesos.”

“These advances would not be possible without the ongoing support of the Head of Government, Dr. Martí Batres Guadarrama, to the Secretariat of Citizen Security and in this case, in particular, to the Undersecretariat of the Penitentiary System. Of course, I also thank the Executive Secretary of the National Public Security System and its head, Isabel la Rosales Herrera, with whom we have extensive coordination and collaboration and who has contributed to strengthening the institutional capacities of this Secretariat and improving security conditions in Mexico City,” said Secretary Vázquez Camacho.

With the acquisition of these vans, the operational capacity of the Undersecretariat of the Penitentiary System will be tripled. In addition, the Special Group for Transfers of Care with a Gender Perspective will be created, to transport women who require the service from one point to another, always accompanied by female guards.

The acquisition of these vehicles responds to the observations issued by the National Human Rights Commission and the Human Rights Commission of Mexico City, in the sense that the authority in the matter must guarantee safe transfers of persons deprived of liberty, ensuring their physical and psychological integrity.

The vans have the capacity to transport up to 10 inmates, plus the Penitentiary and Procedural Security personnel, and are ISO certified for security vehicles and environmental management systems.

A person deprived of liberty may be transferred for different reasons, such as to attend court hearings, to receive medical attention, for inter-prison relations, for family visits, or to participate in sporting and cultural events, which are part of the reintegration strategy promoted by the Undersecretariat of the Penitentiary System of the SSC.

Each transfer involves complex logistics to safeguard the integrity of persons deprived of liberty and avoid incidents that violate order and governance. Therefore, it is important that the authorities have the tools and trained personnel to achieve their objectives with discipline and in favor of society.

The delivery of these vans is part of an effort by the Government of Mexico and Mexico City institutions to improve infrastructure and resources with the goal of providing safer and more humane conditions for all individuals within the penitentiary system, demonstrating the belief that all individuals, regardless of their legal status, deserve to be treated with respect and dignity at all times.
