Mexican cops

Almost two-thirds of police officers in Mexico were unable to demonstrate in a performance review that they are properly qualified or have the required competencies to protect the public, says a report by the Federal Auditor’s Office (ASF).

The review by the National Public Security System (SNSP) was aimed at addressing problems associated with the lack of training of police forces and the application of trustworthiness tests.

The ASF indicated that it had evaluated 99% of officers on active duty with the Professional Career Service and found that while 87% had passed integrity tests only 34.9% provided information regarding their training.

Consequently, the ASF said, "it was not possible to validate the competencies of the remaining 65.1% to carry out their duties in order to protect the public."
