Sinaloa: 500 new agents will enter the local police


The control and confidence test lowered its evaluation standard to have new elements in the state corporations.

Mazatlan, Sinaloa.- Given the urgency of having elements in the ranks of the Ministry of Public Security , the scheme of control and confidence assessments was readjusted, said Renato Ocampo Alcántar, head of the executive secretariat of the Public Security system in Sinaloa .

This caused that the Institute of Criminal Sciences has more demand for young people seeking to be part of the police, therefore, are about to graduate about 500 new police.

We got into modifying the procedures, we tropicalized the matter, that is, we made it adapt to the state, because it is not the same to be evaluating a police investigation, kidnapping or municipal police. We set up work tables and found this readjustment. Renato Ocampo Alcántar.

Compared to last year, the approval percentages went from 14% in applicants and 70% in assets to 55% of the new elements and 92% of the active policemen are approved.

This standard in a new criterion marks a precedent because in 2017 alone 200 elements were released and in 2016, 100 police officers were released.


Ocampo Alcántar mentioned that it works hand in hand with the security system, the Attorney General’s Office and the municipal corporations to reduce the police deficit.

Having more police will benefit us, they are new police officers, better trained, even, the current police forces have participated in a continuous training in issues of human rights, prevention, and police of social proximity. Renato Ocampo Alcántar.

However, this expectation requires citizen participation, in support of the government that works to recover confidence in security matters.
