FBI & Baja Police to Up Information Exchange
The Federal Bureau of Investigation in the United States has agreed to up its information sharing with Baja California authorities, in order to help capture more fugitives. Officials from the FBI, Baja California state police, and state security officials met today in Tijuana to confirm the agreement.
The FBI and U.S. Marshals routinely aid security officials in Mexico with apprehending fugitives from both sides of the border. Information was previously shared, but the new real time database will be much more advanced than previously used. Information such as possible locations, full criminal background, and other details will be accessible to an international unit of the Baja California Preventative Police.
