Crime Statistics in San Miguel

By Atención Staff

In the edition of October 3, Atención published an article related to security statistics provided by David Bossman, President of  Sanmiguelenses Unidos, at a recent meeting of Midday Rotary Club. The group indicated they obtained the information from the National System of Public Security.

The statistics presented cover the January-July 2014 period.

Homicides 33—with 30 recorded as “with intent.” In 2013, there were 26 homicides according to the same federal data base.

Rapes 26

Street robberies 529

House robberies 144

Car thefts 75

Robbery businesses 55

Gabriel Arturo Yáñez, director of the Public Security Department, who was asked for comments, told Atención that the number of homicides “with intent” from January-July this year was five and not 33 as the group published on social networks. He also said that in 2013 there were just 15 homicides and not 26, as was published.

In an attempt to clarify the difference between the figures presented by both sides,  Atención looked for the information published on line by the Executive Secretariat of the National System of Public Safety:

The reported indexes of crime from Jan-July 2014 are as follow

Homicides 33 (four with intent and the rest culpable homicides).

Rapes 13

Other sexual crimes 14

Street robberies 572—this figure includes the robberies of drivers, pedestrians, others, and “without information.

House robberies 157

Car thefts 71

Robbery Businesses 55

Atención has requested the statistics from the State Attorney’s General Office; the public relations department assured us that they  have started the process to get the numbers and, if they are authorized, they will share them with Atención in the days to come

The Executive Secretariat of the National System of Public Security states that:

The crime incidence or the “alleged” register of crimes is based on the previous inquiries reported in the Attorney’s General Office of the 32 states of the Republic, and those General Offices are responsible for their veracity and updating for the facts.
