In an interview with the news paper Milenio of Baja California, Jordi mentioned that he was having negotiations with Dr. Jorge Astiazaran elected mayor's team, to implement drones as part of a new safety strategy in Tijuana, in a way that several areas of the city can be monitored through the drones, as well as reaching areas which are difficult to reach on foot or car when it comes to rescue missions.
The elected Mayor of Tijuana, Dr. Jorge Astiazaran confirmed these negotiations, indicating that if they are approved, Tijuana will be the 3rd city in all of Mexico to use non-manned aircraft in safety procedures.
