Mexico's Lake Chapala is home to as many as 20,000 retirees mostly from the US and Canada. The year-long sunny climate and a sense of safety has kept them coming to the area for decades.

However, the recent murder of an American retiree has led to some in the community to call for more security. Not content with relying solely on others, the group has set up a free telephone line to report crimes to an international call centre in Canada that co-ordinates with local officials.
