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 46 years (as of 2019) for diplomats -- now available, without condition, to anyone interested in the subject of personal protection and in news of Mexico from a global perspective.

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 resposible 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.





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 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.





The President of SecurityCornerMexico.com is Mario González-Roman, who on February 5, 2020 in a special ceremony held at the Zona Rosa's Hotel Holiday Inn in Mexico City received, on behalf of the Mexican Senate and Chamber of Deputies the distinction of Doctor Honoris Causa and the title International Ambassador of Mexico for the World of Knowledge.


He worked from April 2, 1973 to August 10, 2001, worked in the U.S. Embassy in Mexico. He is now retired from the U.S. Civil Service. He was awarded four honorary recognitions by the Department of State and his responsibility included serving as liaison between the Secret Service and the Presidential staff during the visits of U.S. Presidents and Secretaries of State to Mexico.


Through the Diplomatic Security Service, with the support of the Mexican authorities, he was responsible for the official protection of the personnel and facilities that included the Chancery, 20 Consular agencies, 9 Consulates and 10 Consular Agencies throughout the Mexican Republic.


He has served as an Adviser to the United Nations - UNSECOORD- and was the creator of the Culture of Prevention and Safe Travel, through his web site, in 2002. He has broad experience serving as a connection between police departments in Mexico and the U.S., with responsibility for developing strategies and for analysis of  information about hostile activities threatening national interests. Mr. González-Roman has an Associate degree in Sciences from Compton Junior College in the Los Angeles area, California. A summary of his professional career, including a large gallery of photos with Presidents of the United States, is available in PRESIDENTIAL GALLERY.


Please visit above page to learn all details about his 46-year experience in the areas of Public Safety, Crime Prevention and Personal Protection. We exercise our freedom of speech and write about the subjects that we choose, without any form of pressure or influence by anyone. In our quest to help the Expatriate community in Mexico we have created this new website, a 100 % Community Service. Many of our more than 30 articles online are edited by our readers. The whole program has been financed completely by U. S. taxpayers money received from U. S. Civil Service in the form of Mr. Gonzàlez-Romàn's pension.

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.





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.


In order to achieve this goal, it is necessary to obtain the attention of Mexico's business leaders with the support of the administrations of the Federal Government and the Mexico City, as well as, looking forward, state governments. Photo by Destinos Turìsticos






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

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.
