Mazdas? I’ve had five over the years (still have a 2002 626 that my son will inherit) and I’ve loved them. But I seriously question their suitabilty as police cruisers.

“Never [mess] with a man’s ride.” In both Alta and Baja California, it’s the law.

I don’t even want to think about what would happen to somebody who got caught firebombing the Tijuana PD’s new fleet.

An expose by a certain news organization went across the border and recorded the VIN numbers of Mexican police cars.

Would it surprise you to learn that majority of them were reported stolen from the United States?

They’ll just have to take the bus back to San Diego and steal some more.
