San Felipe, Baja, Mexico

Residents from the United States now have a toll free number to complain against common and organized crime within the Mexican territory.

The number 1-866-201-5060 is for both residents of California and the rest of the United States, who can provide the authorities in Baja California, in an anonymous way, information about organized crime and common crime located in Mexico.

Daniel de la Rosa Anaya, Secretary of Public Security in Baja California and Mexican Consul Remedios Gomez Arnau, presented the new toll free phone service 1-866-201-5060 at the Mexican Consulate in San Diego; which can be used to expose criminals located in Mexico or to report if they have been the victim of a crime when transiting through Baja or while living here.

De la Rosa explained that when a caller dials 1-866-201-5060, the call comes into the program 089, operated by the state government of Baja California, specializing in bilingual telephone operators who immediately transfer the complaint to Mexican authorities for their attention. The service is 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.

The program is configured to block phone numbers from which the calls are made, they are not recorded and the telephone operators may not ask the complainant’s personal data.

This service will be introduced in coming days in the consulates of Mexico located in Calexico, California and Yuma, Arizona, to spread mostly among the Hispanic community in these cities and their surrounding regions.

Note that the anonymous reporting service via toll-free number 1-866-201-5060 is available for use from any phone located on the mainland and islands of the United States, including Puerto Rico, Hawaii and Alaska.

If you are residing in Baja, simply dial 089.
