3,200 Mexican Federal Police Fired

August 30, 2010

It appears that more than 3,000 Mexican federal police have been fired dating back to May for failing to do their work or being linked to corruption.

From CNN:

The probe started in mid-May, said Marco Tulio Lopez of the federal police internal affairs department.

“Investigations of our department began many months ago and this is the result,” federal police spokesman Ramon Salinas told CNN.

Among the officers who were fired, Rosas said, were officials in Ciudad Juarez who were publicly accused by fellow officers of corruption several weeks ago. In that incident, two groups of officers shoved and fought each other outside police headquarters.
