I received word today that a special branch of tourism police is being designated this week in Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point). I don't have more details other than that it will consist of 10 patrol cars (not sure whether they are state or local police). I am working to find out more and will provide additional details when they are available. There is a ceremony this afternoon to inaugurate the new branch.
This is a step in the right direction to help control some of the recent issues the town has had with police collecting bribes from tourists. It is one of the reforms I previously called for in my post on police corruption that you can read here.
