City fortifies itself against crime
Celaya – With a population of more than 468,000 people, Celaya is considered the third largest city in the state of Guanajuato, but also the most dangerous during the last 10 years. It is on the list of cities with major crime. Inhabitants have taken extreme measures to compensate for the failure of authorities to control crime. To date, 21 colonias have organized to protect themselves by encouraging the people to keep bats and batons beside their doors.
Some residents have more than just burglar bars and cameras to guard their homes, but have armed themselves to be able to defend their homes and families. Some have said that the government has failed to protect them from crime which makes them victims every day. The installation of security measures, such as burglar bars, has highlighted the failure of authorities to ensure the well-being of the population.
They cannot leave their homes without being threatened by armed men who sometimes beat and injure them.
All in all, there are 21 colonias in this city that have fortified themselves in order to provide security that the government has failed to provide to the residents.
