Puerto Vallarta Police to Receive Training on Vulnerable Groups

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – This week, Puerto Vallarta police officers and other members of the Department of Citizen Security will participate in a three-day training program, “Technical Aspects of Detention Control with a Focus on Vulnerable Groups.”

This initiative, coordinated by the state government’s General Strategic Security Coordination and supported by the Municipal System for the Comprehensive Protection of Girls, Boys and Adolescents (SIPINNA), aims to equip 50 police officers, including commanders and operational personnel, with the knowledge and skills for handling situations involving vulnerable populations.

The training, scheduled for April 17-19 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, will feature presentations by experts from various institutions, including the Supreme Court of Justice, National Migration Institute, State Prosecutor’s Office, Social Attorney’s Office, State Human Rights Commission, Coordination Council for the Implementation of the New Criminal Justice System, and the Secretariat of Security.

Key topics covered will include:

  • Identifying vulnerable groups (including sexual minorities, indigenous communities, migrants, people with disabilities, and children) and their fundamental rights.
  • Police protocols for interacting with vulnerable groups during detentions.
  • Procedures for providing legal representation, investigating crimes against, and prosecuting vulnerable detainees.
  • Specific considerations for migrant children, people with disabilities, indigenous communities, and LGBTQ+ individuals.

This training program underscores the importance of human rights-based policing and ensuring sensitive treatment for vulnerable populations during police encounters.
