Mexico   2014 Crime and Safety Report: Guadalajara      5/8/2014

There are high rates of violent and non-violent crime throughout the Consular district. A majority of violent crime, particularly homicide and kidnapping, is perpetrated by transnational criminal organizations (TCOs), and the victims are most often rival groups or Mexican authorities. The homicide rate in all four states declined in 2013 from 2012 (see graph). Under-reporting in official statistics continues to be a problem, even with regard to homicides. The figures used in this graph are taken from statistics provided directly to the Consulate by authorities in each state. While the absolute numbers cannot be verified, the overall trends are credible. For more info, go to link below:
