It also encouraged the councilors to create a Youth Council to generate projects and public policies aimed at young people.

Another participant was Daniel Iñaki Valtierra, chronicler of the colony San Agustín, who said that it is necessary to appoint the head of the Public Security and Municipal Transit Directorate, to train the elements of the corporation in Human Rights and in procedures according to the Law, in addition to performing an antidoping test. Martha Beatriz May Escamilla, in charge of the Unit of Attention to Victims, and Diana Guadalupe Oropeza Mejía, head of the Search Cell, both of the Coordination of Citizen Services of the municipal police, explained to the citizens the way of acting of each group , besides how and where to approach to ask for support.

Vilchis Contreras acknowledged the contributions of the participants and instructed that the proposals be passed to the corresponding committees, for evaluation and called on the society to take actions from their homes to improve the current conditions of the municipality.

"Not only the Ecateparte society was abandoned in past administrations, but an entire institution, central part of the axis of any government, security, was also abandoned, so today we are taking up this enormous task and we also require the whole of society," he said.

The municipal reported that derived from security strategies implemented, currently in Ecatepec reduced the crime of vehicle theft with violence and in the coming days will be inaugurated the Unit for Attention to Victims of Violence.
