Buenos Aires province Security Minister Alejandro Granados has ratified the decision made by Governor Daniel Scioli to decree the security emergency in Argentina’s most populated district. Crime is a "problem," the official said.

In statements to media today, Granados highlighted the “cooperation of all mayors and political parties” to coordinate efforts in the fight against crime. The minister told reporters the security matter is "sensitive" and "worrying" and must bring all political and judicial players "together."

Recognizing crime was a “problem” in BA province, Granados explained “all provincial attorneys” were showing “support, understanding and collaboration”. A “different attitude,” Scioli’s head of security affairs considered.

“It is a hard battle we are fighting; if we are all together, we will go much better,” he insisted and pointed out “bad cops” are being left aside from the provincial police with new agents joining a security force that has been stained with serious corruption and crime ties accusations over the past decades.

On April 5, Governor Daniel Sicoli held a press conference to announce he was decreeing a 12-month security emergency in the province of Buenos Aires. “This is a fight to defend the most sacred, life," Scioli said at that time and called “all political forces” to coordinate efforts to tackle crime.
