Security report: Is Mexico Safe for Business?

Security in Tijuana Mexico

Tijuana is as safe as any modern city in the world today. Increased industrial and manufacturing development coupled with the more than 150,000 people crossing the border every day counter the glorified news reports of crime in the region.

Crime rates for the City of Tijuana are down and have been on a downward trend for the past several years. In early 2013, Tijuana Mayor Carlos Bustamante announced that kidnappings have fallen 74% since 2010.

With its proximity to the US city of San Diego and the cooperative nature between both US and Mexican governments, Tijuana has historically harbored low anti-American sentiments and flourished with bi-national commercial and family ties. Crimes against Americans are extremely rare given the fact that over 1 million Americans live in Mexico and over 40 million people cross from San Diego into Tijuana each year. 

While Mexico has drug violence, the majority of this violence is between drug cartels and is not targeted towards foreign businessmen or civilians. Narco trafficking in Mexico tends to stay out of industrial and business hubs. Many of the most recent figures continue to demonstrate that Tijuana is comparably as safe, if not more, than its global counterparts.

Is Tijuana Safe?

YES, Tijuana is safe for businessmen and Americans alike.

Despite news glorification of violence in the region, Tijuana ended 2012 with marked security improvements and crime reduction. Efforts made by Tijuana municipal police over the last 5 years to combat corruption in the ranks as well as improve security on the streets are proving effective in reducing violence in Tijuana.

Work Plan Developed by The Municipal Public Safety Office of Tijuana

The entire municipal police department was uprooted by first purging a third of the police force, indicting those found to have participated in organized crime. Training was provided in the use of firearms, proceedings and other tactics, as well as equipping the department with the necessary patrols, command centers, protective gear and communication networks.

These enhancements and sectioning the police into local regions and the establishment of an accountability system, has increased the moral and professionalism of the police force. Long term efforts for improvements have been set forth to continue the fight against crime.

Mexico & U.S. Trade Relations

Over the last thirty years thousands of global companies have chosen to invest in the region.

Executives and management teams frequently travel in and out without incident and in relative safety in Mexico. These companies have done their own security due-diligence and concluded that Tijuana is as safe as any modern city in the world as evident by their continued investment and activities in the region.

The US Consulate often issues Mexico travel advisoryUS ConsulateMexico travel advisory notices notices that are for rural, out of the way drug routes, well away from manufacturing activities and locations.
