Mexico: Ciudad Juárez introduces 400 CNG-powered patrol cars
As part of the actions implemented by the 2018-2021 Municipal Government to safeguard the integrity of the people of Juarez, the delivery of 400 patrol cars running on natural gas for the Public Security Secretariat (SSPM) took place in March, in an event held at the Plaza de la Mexicanidad.
The Municipal President Armando Cabada Alvídrez led the delivery ceremony of the vehicles that were previously tendered for lease: 300 arrived in the city at the end of February and the other 100 in the first days of March. He explained that they opted for a 36-month lease system, which will generate savings of 40 million pesos, in addition to the savings of 15 million pesos in fuel costs, because the cars operate with CNG.
“Our commitment to security is unavoidable and is more consolidated now than ever, we must not wait for things to happen, we must make things happen,” said the mayor.
Since their arrival, the vehicles are already in operation, offering services of vigilance and prevention tasks. Cabada Alvídrez announced that from 2016 to date, 783 patrol cars have been acquired, both for the SSPM and for the General Direction of Transport, with a total investment of 687 million pesos at the end of the lease.
