Navy captain takes control in Vallarta

Following the assassination of former Jalisco Governor Aristoteles Sandoval last month, the Mexican Navy (Semar) has taken charge of municipal public security in Puerto Vallarta.

The force will be under the command of Captain Fernando Viveros Hernández, who replaces public security chief Jorge Misael López, who has left his post. State and federal law enforcement officers will participate in the new security format and also patrol the streets of the tourist resort for the foreseeable future, a state government bulletin noted.
