According to the authorities, over the past five years, more than 300 leaders of the antagonist gangs Mara 13 and Barrio 18 were detained in Chiapas, some of them detained in the entity’s penal centers and others were taken to their countries of origin.

The CAT will be in charge of the Migrant Assistance Office, within the Regional Security and Crime Prevention Program, implemented by the State Attorney General and the Interinstitutional Group, integrated by the Specialized Police, the State Preventive Police, the Municipal Police and the Federal Police.

In addition, CAT Chiapas will be linked to the Transnational Anti-gang Center of the National Civil Police of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, which will help identify criminals.
