Mexican Criminal Policy is distinguished by its historical repression, the strategies implemented by the current government affected directly the violence and crime index. These facts beat and modified the conformation of the public space. Recreational places, parks, streets, squares, etc., stopped having the dynamism that used to have. On the other hand, the global postmodern speech changes the conception of the city, nowadays is privileged the consumption, so the city has transform in order to achieve the goals of the capitalism, with resulting of disjointed public spaces, hindering social relations. Therefore, it is proposed to promote a Criminal Policy with an integral and social well-being approach, these will have an impact on the conformations of public space in the city and also will be understood as policies of development and urban design.
