Mexicali police Chief Pedro Ariel Mendívil announced the improvement of Public Safety services to Los Algodones visitors by implementing a tourist unit.
Police agents assigned to the unit will be bilingual and the substation has been planned to get moved to this medical healthcare town.
The changes are part of the public safety plan announced by Chief Mendívil earlier this week.
Mexicali police officials visited the town Wednesday in order to meet and talk to healthcare providers and residents to discuss local issues.
During the meeting providers said foreign visitors are now afraid of their safety, which has stopped many from crossing the border to get services.
According to the police about 90 percent of Los Algodones residents live of tourist activities.
Besides the tourist police unit Mendívil said more agents will be assigned to the town, including bicycle units, while periodical meetings between residents and law enforcement have been planned as well. Regarding the substation, Chief Mendívil expects it to be fully operational in six months.
