translated from Spanish: Mexico closes 2020 with drop in homicides and slight rise in femicide

In 2020 there will be a decrease of 0.4% in intentional homicides and 1.3% in the homicide rate per 100 thousand inhabitants, compared to 2019, according to data presented by the Secretary of Security and Citizen Protection (SSPC) during the morning conference on 31 December. 
According to these data, based on information from the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System, from 2016 to 2017 there was an increase in this crime of 16.9%; in that from 2018 to 2019 there was an increase of 2.7% and now the projected closure for 2020 reports a drop of 0.4%. 
In femicides, however, there will be an increase of 0.3%, although this has to do with the gender focus gaining ground in ministerial actions to consider what was previously typified to be murder as femicide, the unit reported. 
Regarding vehicle theft, SSPC reports a downward trend of 24%. And a 21% reduction in total thefts, including home room, motor vehicle, carrier, passers-by, collective or individual public transport, banking institution, business, machinery theft, among others. 
In kidnapping, the unit reports a decrease of 38.5%. In hydrocarbon theft, the SSPC reports an estimated saving of 124 billion 004 million 265 thousand 487 pesos. This equates to a daily saving of 156 million 784 thousand 319 pesos. While in sheds, the prevention of losses is reported at 9.6 billion pesos. 
For its part, the National Guard reported that in the goal of recruiting 21 thousand 430 elements, there is a 93% advance. The Navy Secretariat will recruit a thousand 400 items in January to meet the 2020 target. 
In construction of barracks, there are 120 fully built and 52 in the final phase that will be completed in January. The goal is to close 2021 with 248.
