The knowledge and skills for the handling of automatic weapons, allows the police of Yucatan to be better prepared to inhibit and repel threats against the security of the population, being one of the main reasons why Yucatan is the safest state in all of Mexico.

All of the agents were previously evaluated and approved in automatic weapons use and skills by the Ministry of National Defense based at the 32 Military Zone. All agents were tested at the Regional Individual Combat Training Center (CACIR).

The training, which was given at a local firing range, was provided by Israeli instructors from the “Israel Weapons Industries (IWI) arms company.
