The local police as problem and solution on public security and impunity in Mexico:

On September 23, 2020, the World Justice Project and the Mexico Institute of the Wilson Center jointly convened a virtual round table to discuss interrelated problems arising from impunity and insecurity in Mexico, as well as the role of the municipal police force.
