Over two dozen businesses received panic buttons in order to be allowed to contact the police during a crime.
Mexicali Chamber of Commerce President Lidia Granados said this is the first time in eight years company owners get such devices.
“They worked back then,” Granados said. “These ones are wireless so we expect this facilitates their connection.”
Business owners expect to reduce police responding times with the buttons.
According to the chamber’s president, crimes against businesses has increased 10 percent in the last months.
