Baja California will be the most benefitted state in northern Mexico, after it was determined that it will receive 334 million pesos in 2023. This was revealed by Governor Marina del Pilar, who was part of the signing of the Collaboration Agreement of the Public Security Contribution Fund (FASP).

This money will be allocated to social prevention of violence and crime public policies with citizen participation, the development, professionalization, and certification of police officers, infrastructure and support equipment for police operations, among other tasks to strengthen prevention and security actions.
For his part, the Secretary of the Interior, Adan Augusto Hernández, pointed out that these government actions, led by Andres Manuel López Obrador, reaffirms his commitment with the states in order to guarantee people’s security.
