new neighborhood alarms

in one of the most popular neighborhoods of that district in the Northwest of Greater Buenos Aires.

to connect directly with the Municipal Operations Center

(COM) to request immediate assistance, if necessary.

The mayor, Jaime Méndez, spoke with the neighbors during a delivery of community alarm buttons.

"We made the second installment of neighborhood alarms in Obligado. Thousands of residents in the area and throughout the district are already using this tool. In addition, our security system has cameras, patrol cars, and motorcycles to prevent crime throughout San Miguel" , pointed out the community chief, who during the day and in dialogue with the neighbors elaborated on the program.

As specified by the Commune,

each house

on the block in which the alarm was installed

has a remote control


If you want to issue an alert in the event of an emergency, you have to

press a button that will automatically be replicated in the

local COM.

From the headquarters from where the cameras and license plate readers are monitored, they will send the notification in question to

the closest patrol to attend

the place and,

in parallel, the area is monitored

with the different security cameras posted in the region.

How to join

Those who want to join the program of municipal neighborhood alarms must participate in the

participatory budget meetings of the neighborhoods
