Project Summary & Objectives
Mexican Federal Police and the Municipal Police services
of Morelia and General Escobedo
Scoping study for national police modernisation and review of municipal community policing models
In 2015 Paddy Tomkins was invited by Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (CIDE) and the British Embassy to Mexico to speak at a conference in Mexico City on the subject of human rights and accountability in policing. The address prompted an immediate request to Droman from the Embassy to undertake a scoping study of policing arrangements in Mexico and to provide recommendations for reform. This work was undertaken by Droman associate Sir Stephen House QPM in 2016 and a full report with recommendations supplied.
Simultaneously, the Embassy and the Mexican Federal Police asked Droman to prepare a bid to the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) for funding from the Global Cyber Challenge Fund for a mobile immersive learning platform to train police officers in the management of cybercrime and digital forensics. The bid came second in the funding competition.
In late 2016 Droman was commissioned by the Mexican research organisation Fundaćion IDEA to review the community policing pilot sites in the municipalities of Morelia and General Escobedo. This work was undertaken by Andrew Bates QPM, an expert in community policing models and applications, and a full report with recommendations provided.
