With cash, there is no infraction? Mazatlán police forces drivers to withdraw money from the ATM


The Secretary of Public Security in Mazatlan indicated that there are complaints against transit agents for this practice, which are already in the Internal Control Body.

Mazatlan, Sinaloa. – There are police officers in Mazatlan who force people to go to ATMs to withdraw money and give them some “little bills” in exchange for not being arrested, confirmed the Secretary of Public Security, Commissioner Simón Malpica Hernández.

And it is that, during the event of delivery of uniforms and equipment to elements of the corporation in the port, the mayor Édgar González Zataráin, revealed that, unfortunately, there are agents who incur in this practice, which was later corroborated by the chief police.

Malpica Hernández explained that, around this issue, there is a complaint against transit agents and it is already in the Internal Control Body.

“Only that they are denounced for extortion and it is already the one that takes the complaint and the Internal Control Body follows up on it. It is up to him, to the Organ, it depends on what comes out of guilt to the elements. It is approximately like 20 days old,” he explained.

Malpica Hernández reported that in the police force there will be some 200 rank-and-file officers who have no rank and who have been waiting for a promotion for between 5 and 20 years, so it is fair that the ranks and promotions come according to merit.

He added that they will have about 11 years without a call to assign promotions on their own merits.

During the delivery of uniforms and equipment to elements of the police and transit, Mayor Édgar González Zataráin explained that he will deliver 10 new radar guns to the Transit elements, which will allow detecting motorists who are speeding and to verify if They travel while intoxicated.

Regarding this team, the person in charge of security in the municipality of Mazatlán assured that the Traffic agents will not be hidden “hunting” those drivers, but will be on the march, while confirming that, from now on, no Police element must wear a hood.
