Mass Investigation Against Police Officers in Mexico

The northern Mexican city of Linares has begun to investigate its entire police force for corruption and connections to criminal groups. The decision to conduct the investigation was triggered by an increase in kidnapping and extortion occurrences in the city.

According to the town’s mayor, Francisco Quintanilla, over 100 city police officers were transported by bus to another town, where they will be held in custody while the investigation is running. In the meantime, Linares will be patrolled by soldiers and state police officers.
