Ensenada Plans to Shield the Wine Valley After Business Owners Complain

Authorities from the three levels of government (city, state and federal), agreed to strengthen security in the wine valley by opening a second security booth, working on public lighting and programming more security checkpoints in a meeting with business owners from the valley.

Attendants to the meeting told authorities about the increase of non-violent thefts that they have suffered lately and asked authorities to prioritize and solve the issue as soon as possible.

Ensenada mayor, Marco Antonio Novelo, emphasized the importance of filing a report with authorities for them to know about the problem and work on a solution as most crimes in the city go unreported. A report by Ethos Public Policy Lab published last year stated that 94% of crimes in the whole country go unreported because people think it’s just a waste of time.

The city has been strongly pushing the wine valley to national and international tourists for a few years now and gets pretty worried when there are crime problems over there, sometime getting residents of other parts of Ensenada, specially the low-income areas, disgruntled at the lack of surveillance there.
