In December 2016, an SUV crashed on the side of a highway in the city of Tarragona, Mexico, killing one and injuring five.
A week later, a car slammed into a police car, killing an officer.
Both cases sparked protests and accusations of brutality against Mexico’s police force.
The country’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto, took several days to issue an apology for the fatal police-involved crash.
Peña’s government has since moved to reform the country’s police, including by creating an independent body to monitor the police and a law to increase the number of officers in each city.
