Abstract for: Toward a new Federal Police force in México: an analysis of critical processes through System Dynamics

The insecurity crisis that Mexico is facing has taken to a reform in the Federal Law to impel the development of a new federal police, with trained elements in knowledge and tactics that allow them to face the crime of one more effective and coordinated way. The present work shows the results of a project designed to evaluate how feasible would be the implementation of such law. It required integrating a team with officers of the Federal Police force to design a dynamic model to analyze the key processes related to the transition of the current force to a new structure required for the law. This document presents the methodological frame, the design of the model some findings about the process and a scenario analysis to visualize some strategies that could be implemented in order fulfill the requirements of the law.
