National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) president Luis Raúl González Pérez demanded that ex-governors and current governors be punished for not having required training or professionalization of their police for the last 10 years.
He also supported Interior Secretary Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong’s announcement that a national agreement will be made to remove the Armed Forces from the streets, reducing their interaction with civilians.
González Pérez insisted that the state and municipal police forces should be subject to exhaustive training.
“Let us not fail to demand that the federal government train and professionalize their police officers. We have been asking this for the last 10 years, and training has yet to be enforced. Today, I think we have to implement the appropriate punishments for those who have not complied,” he said.
He was grateful that the Federal Government had respected the CNDH’s proposal to establish a date for the Army, Navy and Air Force to return to their bases.
