Police Innovation

The three biggest cities in Durango have unified their police operations with the Durango state police. This is a mini-version of what lots of experts say Mexico needs on a national scale, so it's provoked a fair amount of interest and praise. One of the praisers was Fernando Gómez Mont:
[This is] an essential step toward strengthening police institutions and generating greater capacity to respond in their actions against drugs.
One element that has surely facilitated this consolidation is that the executives of each of the cities and the governor of Durango (as well as Gómez Mont, if you believe Jesús Ortega) are all priístas.
