Security Corner is an Independent Information resource on the Internet. It originated in 2002 as an experiment and has grown to where today it is - the most visited web site specializing in the subjects of Public Security and Crime Prevention. It has had more than 4.5 million visitors through the more than half-dozen prestigious media that publish Security Corner articles adapted for each magazine, newspaper, or international organization. It is important to emphasize that from its creation, Security Corner is not a company, nor do we sell anything. Likewise, we do not have any political or commercial interests. This is the same program for which the creator was responsible for the last 37 years (as of 2010) for diplomats -- now available, without condition, to anyone interested in the subject of personal protection and in news of Mexico from a global perspective.

Ever read these headlines?
Should you ever be arrested -whatever the reason: automobile accident, labor disputes, traffic violations, you name it, most Embassies will simply provide a list of lawyers they are not responsible for, oh yes! diplomats will offer to assist your relatives in wiring you money, comfort you by offering English-language magazines, wish you .. Good Luck
In any interaction with the criminal justice system, you should obtain qualified legal advice, but there are often problems in addition to legal issues. Security Corner, with its highly qualified team, has a HANDS-ON-APPROACH proven in over more than 7 years of providing an unparalelled non-profit service that has helped more Americans, Brits and Canadians than any other approach. When possible, we've served as channel of communication between authorities and victims of crime, at no cost. In some critical cases, such as kidnapping, we've offered valuable assistance and support.
Security Corner in Mexico President is a volunteer in this program
Generously spending his time to help others
Link: Protocolo Magazine
Arising from serious governmental corruption problems, as much in the US Government as the Mexican government, Mr. Mario González-Roman has personally been a victim of kidnapping and torture and his family persecuted.
One of Security Corner’s advantages is its great margin of CREDIBILITY. It has no equals. He offers his personal experience online, which inspires virtual visitors to seek consultation, with no charge.
On several occasions he has had fortunate outcomes when guiding and supporting kidnapping victims. A recent specific case was a girl of 13 years of age, in a Mexican city, in which a very heavy ransom was demanded. Her grandfather, from Paris, France, wrote to request assistance. The minor was released safe and sound. This is one of several cases in which we have been able to serve the public during the last 7 years. Security Corner represents an altruistic service without conditions. We only ask a written request for assistance and, depending on the case, we are able to help, always involving the police authorities of Mexico.
WHO WE ARE
We have an excellent work team formed as a result of former institutional connections of Mr. González-Roman with the Government of Mexico and private industry. They have, for more than 8 years, been collaborating to give an incomparable image to the pages of Security Corner, without receiving any economic compensation.
These are volunteers who provide their time, experience, anonymously. Among these, we have a doctor in psychiatry with specialty in criminology, ex- academic of Harvard University. In addition, outstanding members of the Mexican Foreign Service. Also, a lawyer, former and currently active law-enforcers, a psychotherapist with a specialty in children and family unity & psychologists with specialty in graphology, experts in military security training, a specialist in economic geography in the process of obtaining a doctorate, and countless other allies who try to give us the best, most up-to-date information to satisfy our growing readership.

OUR READERS: The Most Important Collaborators
The most important credit that our articles have is that they are edited in English, the great majority by foreign residents that have adopted to Mexico as a new home.Among these there are ex-members of the foreign service, housewives, corporate executives, students, teachers, and tourists. Normally they do this spontaneously and they usually ask for anonymity, because they are in disagreement with the negative image of Mexico that is sometimes promoted abroad. We consider these volunteers to be an essential part of the program of Security Corner in Mexico.
With 43 years of experience in 2015 under our belt, and with a rich set of ingredients, our philosophy is based in a simple fact: It is much more practical to offer programs aimed at Prevention than to concentrate on solving problems after they have happened. Thus, we have described the best way use public transportation, to find a taxi, to select a place to live, to travel by highway.
Our program includes a broad range of opinions, including especially the opinions of our readers, which we respect especially. At the end of the day, it is our readers who decide what opinions to accept, in accordance with their own ideals, their family, their corporate interests. We know that Mexico, like many other countries, suffers serious indications of corruption. Because we offer online the professional background of Mr. Mario González-Roman, our readers feel confident in writing and casting their vote for achieving the best possible communication with our authorities.
We serve as bridge of communication for the better understanding between our readers and our public servants.We believe that the solution to the serious problems of Public Security begins at home. We want to convince those who believe in us that basic education and family values are the most powerful weapons that we have in Mexico. The success of our schoolteachers, police, and members of the Armed Forces in the work that society has entrusted to them-- with the rickety budgets they have in these complicated times for the world economy -- all depends on the upbringing that we give our children.We call on business leaders and people of good will to draw attention to a strategy of relevant work that can impact the National Agenda.
BRIDGE OF COMMUNICATION & UNDERSTANDING
WORKING TOGETHER TO .. BUILD
In 2010, it has been 8 years since we initiated this project. It was an experiment. Today we know for sure, without fear of equivocation, that it works and we offer it for your consideration.Without being rich, I have spent out of my pocket, with pleasure, more than $ 200,000 U.S. in acquiring computer and communications equipment, payment of services for obtaining information, and travel inside and outside the Mexican Republic. I believe that we have arrived at the moment at which we work together to build something that will be lasting and will bring concrete results.
We feel that the wide distribution of the Programs of Security Corner is a gold mine, ready to be exploited. In fact, the National Travel Association of the US is analyzing this same proposal and if it is accepted, it will be a great success for the National Agenda. Nevertheless, we are Mexicans proud of our country and we have the confidence that visionary business leaders - without regard to their nationality – who are committed to Mexico and to the promotion of truth, to improve understanding, will back us and invest in this project.
What we propose is that, in coordination with the Federal and Mexico City Governments we have continued cooperation to develop specific strategies for widespread diffusion of the Culture of Safe Travel and Prevention, using the content of the Security Corner website, developing combined plans involving foreign investment for our compatible groups, for audio-visual programs in English aimed at the International Community.
FEDERAL AND MEXICO CITY GOVERNMENTS WORKING .. TOGETHER.

SECURITY CORNER AND MEDIA COMPANIES
In fact, the President of the Republic and Head of Government - and looking ahead, state governments -- would be the first beneficiaries of improving their institutional image with programs that have been proven to work. That is, nobody loses. Everybody wins – especially the citizenry hurt by failed and mistaken public security policies. Photo by Toni Bosch

We seek the attention of the owners of MEDIA companies for the production of videos, MASSIVE programs that can showcase the Culture of Safe Travel and Prevention in a way that is versatile and even entertaining. Go to our ENGLISH page and try our videos.
NEWS! - Versatile, Dynamic, Intelligent Information
For years Mexico has been subject to expensive campaigns abroad that persist in affecting our image as a country. The News! Section of our site represents something like what we called, in my work in the American Embassy and later in the UN, an Executive Summary - Security Briefing- for the attention of the Head of Security and other high officials. Now it is freely available to our visitors. It is necessary to recognize that we have high levels of poverty and increasing problems of unemployment. These generate delinquency, which is better organized every day. Also we must recognize that thanks to the countries of the so-called First World, Mexico is entangled in a violent war against organized crime that costs the lives of innumerable young men and women, members of the Armed Forces and of the police authorities, and jeopardizing the ideals of a safe country.
To accuse or to identify Mexico as a world champion in corruption is valid, nevertheless we see in the NEWS! Section that we are not alone in this world-wide problem. We must always see first to our own national interests before any imposed on us by foreign governments.
In all these programs, we would use the global vision that unfortunately we often lack in Mexico. The idea is to begin by acknowledging the serious problems of unemployment, poverty, and lack of efficiency of our authorities that do what they can with problems inherited from previous governments, but also simultaneously to document with reliable facts that we are not unique in these problems. These problems, including CORRUPTION, are common in nations called First World countries. Their governments magnify our reality to harm our image, to benefit the tourism industry, the businesses beginning from September 11, 2001.
