MEXICO CITY -- The Mexican Government under recently inaugurated President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has dispatched large numbers of Mexican Military and Police personnel to 17 locations throughout the country designated as hot spots of violence.

The plan entails the permanent deployment of mid-sized formations to districts marked by significant and sustained violence. The intention of the plan is to provide these areas with a stable and persistent source of security rather than pursuing piecemeal deployments that merely come and go in response to local crises and build a lasting security infrastructure that is less dependent in the intermediate-term on the often over-burdened or compromised local police and security forces. In time, authority over these formations is likely to fall under the purview of the emerging National Guard.

Nevertheless, the initiative is merely the latest of a long series of Government programs that have attempted to curtail spiraling violence through the utilization of military assets for localized policing and security duties, with troops first appearing on the streets over a decade ago under the administration of President Felipe Calderon.

The program will initially see 600 military and police personnel deployed to each of the 17 designated problem districts. Areas chosen for the program include Acapulco, Tijuana, Ciudad Jaurez, Reynosa and Nuevo Laredo among others.
