The state Attorney General’s office has announced the restart of a program that provides patrolling in eateries.
The goal of the Safe Restaurant program is to protect consumers.
On Monday, the agency provides 16 panic buttons to restaurants.
Assistant Attorney General in Mexicali Pedro Ariel Mendívil said panic buttons had also been given to other businesses in the city including schools and homes.
Those interested in having a panic button must file an application. Then, the agency holds a study to determine the feasibility.
Mendívil said the agency has also created WhatsApp groups to address reports.
The agency has plans to launch an outreach effort along with the Citizens Public Safety Committee of Mexicali to promote panic buttons.
