Hundreds of police officers of Baja California are still waiting to see their retirement checks paid.
Last month police agent representatives and state authorities signed an agreement to get 400 million pesos or $20 million paid in retirement funds to 350 cops.
However, the payment has not been paid, State Confederation of Police Associations President Alejandro Monreal said.
Police agents held on Oct. 11 a protest to demand the payment. The demonstration prompted an agreement to pay the benefits before the administration ended in Halloween.
“It was a promise to calm down the situation in the moment,” Monreal said. “We were deceived by Governor Jaime Bonilla.” The police agent leader said the Confederation has negotiated with the state in order to get retirement paychecks disbursed by January.
