According to the head of state, in the period from 2006 to 2012, corresponding to the leadership of former Defense Secretary Felipe Calder贸n, the crime rate reported 30 civilian deaths and 54 injuries in 2007, 1,412 deaths and 1,127 injuries in 2011, which represented a historical peak.

However, after the six-year term, in 2019, 234 civilian deaths and 402 detainees were reported; figures that decrease in 2021 with 212 deaths and 365 people injured or detained.

“We have reduced the incidence of crime in almost everything, it took us three years, and when there was talk of hugs, not bullets, of addressing the causes of crime, that human beings are not evil by nature, they gave us the plane,” stressed the president.

Thus, since the beginning of the year 2022, only a total of 94 deceased persons and at least 211 citizens deprived of liberty have been reported.

In this sense, the current Secretary of National Defense, Luis Cresencio Sandoval, specified that during his administration the decrease in fatality rates is projected; which will be achieved with the execution of the operations carried out by the Armed Forces, under the regulations established by the National Law on the Use of Force, issued in 2019.
