As Mexico’s security situation continues to deteriorate -- along with public trust in law enforcement -- some police officers in the country are trading in their guns for guitarrónes in an effort to help improve the image of the force.

A group of 21 federal police officers, who also just happen to be professional musicians, have formed a mariachi band in order to show the human side of law enforcement and break down widespread mistrust in the force -- a chronic issue in a country plagued by the underreporting of crimes.

Playing one of the country’s most famous and popular styles of folk music is meant to show that cops are present in some regions of Mexico -- Michoacán, Tamaulipas and Sinaloa, for example – that have been hotspots for a drug war that has raged for more than a decade, Federal Police Mariachi Musical Director Juan Ramón Soto said to El Universal.
