Morelos is the ninth most violent state in the country, reported Fernando Vela López, director of the Citizen Council of Public Security and Justice Prosecution, who pointed out that according to data from the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System, the Tlahuica entity is one of the entities most insecure in the Mexican Republic.

In an interview, Fernando Vela López, director of the Council, reported that the Morelos entity is ranked ninth in the country with the highest number of complaints to the State Attorney General’s Office for various crimes.

He even detailed that Morelos is ranked first with the highest number of femicides in the entire country, according to the number of inhabitants.

He also pointed out that Morelos is another of the states that occupies second place in intentional homicides, but it is also located in fifth place in other crimes, such as robbery with violence.

In addition, the lack of a security strategy means that it also ranks seventh in the country in crimes due to theft from various businesses.

The security expert stated that the increase in violence since 2020 is worrying.
