"Purged" Police is Back to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico

Police officers returned to the streets of Nuevo Laredo on the U.S.-Mexico border, almost six weeks after the entire force was pulled off the beat for drug testing and background checks in an effort to weed out corruption. About a third of Nuevo Laredo's 700 police officers were fired in the anti-corruption drive, most for failing to take drug tests. Tuesday, and 44 officers drove off in new patrol cars. The rest of the new force of 460 officers will go back to work as soon as Wednesday.
