Massive Amount of Police Terminations in Nuevo Leon

Some 20 former police officers face criminal proceedings in the PGJE

Some 481 municipal and state police officers have been terminated from the police departments in recent months because of the failed confidence test, for their alleged complicity with organized crime and a major clean up processes driven by the governmental authorities.

At least 20 of these former municipal police officers faced several criminal charges before the Attorney General in Nuevo León from November 2009 to February 2010.

The municipality of Escobedo, governed by the PRI Carrales Clara Luz Flores, reported that a total of 142 officers were dismissed.

The mayor said that "the terminations have been for various reasons, some had resigned, others were let go due a series of drug tests and confidence tests."


  1. So after all 481 municipal and state police officers are terminated from the ranks from this state. Who is going to fill these vacancies? The whole country of mexico is corrupt. Where do they go from here?

  2. I think this process is precisely to eliminate corrupt police officers from honest ones. Is a wrong generalization to declare that the whole country is corrupt, if that were the case, then what is all this drug war about? Wouldn't be easier to just keep on letting the cartels have their way and not fight it?

    Mexico is going through a very tough time, much like the US in times of prohibition and mafia golden years. And hopefully, also like the US, Mexico will prevail and a Mexico more mature will emerge. This, for Mexico and US sake...
