  • Baja Dismisses 129 Officers

    Baja officers dismissed in effort to root out corruption

    TIJUANA – Top Baja California law enforcement officials Wednesday announced the dismissal of 129 police officers, investigators, prosecutors and other members of law enforcement agencies across the state.

    Those fired include 90 municipal police officers, 66 of them from Tijuana; 40 employees of the Baja California Attorney General's Office, including 17 investigators; four members of the Baja California state preventive police; and one state prison custodian.

    The dismissals were made for a range of reasons, from administrative infractions to accusations of torture, falsification of documents and crimes against the administration of justice, said Rommel Moreno Manjarrez, Baja California's attorney general. They included two state agents already behind bars, one accused of rape, the other of homicide.

    Daniel de la Rosa, Baja California's secretary of public safety, said the agencies will keep track of the dismissed officials, visiting their homes and checking their sources of income to ensure that they do not become involved with organized crime. Their names will be placed on a list circulated nationally so they cannot be hired by other agencies, the secretary said.

    The dismissals are an part of an ongoing effort to root out corruption, and come as law enforcement agencies across Mexico struggle with the issue of ensuring honest police forces.

    Yeah ok, and what makes Mexican officals think the new officers won't be corrupt?...Mexico just needs to take a tougher stand on crime/criminals...Maybe the death penalty...Just a thought...

        I doubt any of these people were fired due to being corrupt. They were probably fired because they were working for the other corrupt politicians. Mexico is a stagnant, disease ridden, cesspool and finding any honest politicians or government employees there is probably impossible.

          Is there any hope for that country? It's amazing that the two countries to their north are doing fine while they struggle in a continuous graveyard.

            They have a death penalty. It is imposed by the drug gangs. Police officers who resist the gangs are sentenced to death and executed immediately.

            I think that Mexico is beyond the point where any criminal justice system can control crime.
