France gives tactical intervention course to Mexico police

Cancun, Q.R. — The Attorney General of the State of Quintana Roo has received anti-kidnapping prosecutors from around Mexico for their participation in French police courses on tactical intervention.

Members of the country’s anti-kidnapping units have arrived in Cancun to take part in the Surveillance and Tactical Interventions course that will be taught by the French National Police in coordination with the National Commission of Security.

“We focus on ensuring that the families of Quintana Roo feel safe, as well as those who visit us from different parts of the world,” said Óscar Montes de Oca Rosales, head of the State’s Attorney General’s Office.

He says that Mexico’s officers will learn methodology and research techniques of specialists from France over the five-day course.

Patricia Bugarín Gutiérrez, undersecretary of Federal Public Security said that authorities are more organized and more focused to provide results in the fight against crime in all senses, which is why the participation of Mexico’s anti-kidnapping members is required.

The course is being taught by Franck Sohier, trainer at the Center Interministériel de Formation Anti-Drogue and Jean Jacques Desvaux, attache of the French National Police.
