Mayor presents honors to local police force

[excerpt from Press Release-Jan.7.2016]

In recognition of “Día de la Policia” (Police Day) on January 6th, members of the local police force were presented with acknowledgments by Mayor Kiko Munro and a dinner in the honor.

At the event, which was held at the Peñasco EXPO Convention Center, the 140 members of the local police force were lauded for their work. This included special acknowledgment of agents who have been on the force for 20, 15, 10 and 5 years.

In his message to the local police, Mayor Munro emphasized supporting the local police department is fundamental for his administration to ensure it continue to grow and become stronger so that together they can maintain order and safety, as well as confront both present and future challenges Puerto Peñasco may face. He noted steps are being taken to pursue federal funds to help subsidize programs in order to provide further training, new uniforms, equipment, weapons, and vehicles to the local police force while also improving the department’s facilities.
