One-third of Jalisco’s cops untrained in new justice system

Jalisco is behind schedule in the task of getting all of its police officers up to speed in time for the implementation of the nation’s new criminal justice system. So far, 15,000 state and municipal police officers have taken the necessary training course, which represents 71 percent of the various forces in Jalisco.

Officially, the nationwide system comes into full effect on June 18, but Jalisco authorities hope to have everything in place one month before the deadline. Authorities are confident the 4,336 municipal police officers who have yet to take the 40-hour training course will have done so prior to June 18.
