Bribery Numbers

Genaro García Luna estimates that across the nation, organized crime groups pay police about $1.2 billion a year in bribes, mostly denominated in payments of a few hundred dollars per month. The estimates are based on payout documents discovered by the Federal Police. García Luna went on to say that 60 percent of the nation's police make less than 4,000 pesos (or just over $300) per month, which is of course not an insignificant detail.
