Municipal police training in criminal investigation
This training session was titled "The criminal investigation at the scene of the intervention" The municipal Chief of Police, Eduardo Fouilloux Bataller explained that these courses are provided by the
Fiscalía General del Estado (FGE) / State Attorney General's office for active personnel to strengthen their knowledge of police actions relating to intervention protocols. These courses are part of ongoing training for municipal police officers.
The municipal Director of Crime Prevention, Flavio Carmona Valdivia, said that through theoretical and practical sessions, police personnel received updated information concerning their duties to protect evidence at the site, once an offense has been committed. He said, "With
these activities and this knowledge, the Police of Isla Mujeres will be able to
perform their work better, always for the benefit of the
island families, and at all times respecting the rights of the involved parties."
