Security Messages for U.S. Citizens

  • 04/13/2015 Security Message Guadalajara (Mexico): The United States Consulate General in Guadalajara wishes to alert U.S. citizens to a number of recent violent, deadly confrontations between criminal organizations and police.  These incidents have occurred in various parts of the State of Jalisco, and may continue.  While the Consulate has no specific information that U.S. citizens are being targeted, the unpredictable nature of the attacks means that U.S. citizens should review their personal security preparations and remain vigilant at all times.  The Consulate also continues to recommend that inter-city travel be done during daylight hours and that when possible toll roads (“Cuotas”) should be used.
