Police Certificate from Mexico

Subject: Police Certificate from Mexico

Does anybody know how to go about requesting a police certificate from Mexico?

We are not currently in Mexico but in the past lived there for a year and the consulate is requesting a police certificate from Mexico.

I have tried all I could possibly do to try to obtain this, but to no avail. If anyone knows how to go about doing it, I´d appreciate it.

Thanks and good luck to everyone!

Hello there, at the CIC web site there´s a link about how to get police certificates from lots of countries.

The link is


And this is what it says for Mexico:

Procedures for Obtaining Police Certificates
Do I need to provide a police certificate when applying for permanent residence?

How or where do I obtain one?
Federal Mexican Police certificates are not available prior to submission of an application. The visa office receiving the application will advise applicants regarding how to complete this requirement. In some instances, a state certificate will be required by the Canadian visa office.

Direcci?n General de Procedimientos Penales
Attn: Lic. Aaron Hirsch Klieman
Director General de Control de Procedimientos Penales
Fernando de Alba e Ixtlixochitl 185, 4o Piso
Col. Transito
06300, M?xico D. F.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck

Thanks, Me.
I read that on the CIC website.
Unfortunately there is no other contact info (phone number or fax or email) and I have no one in Mexico to go to that address.
I did a search and it came up with nothing for that department of Mexican Government.
Believe me, sending a letter to that address will not even get a reply (or if I´m lucky 6 months down the road, I lived in Mexico and know how the bureucracy is there).

Any way..I appreciate your efforts.

I did, however, have a friend try to request a state certificate (from the Mexican state where I lived) and she had to make two trips to the jail (horrible) and all they did was write a letter saying that according to law blah blah blah we do not issue police certificates since 1990.
I sent this to Buffalo with original application but I guess that wasn´t enough.

I called Detroit and they don´t know how to get one either...
so...who knows!!?!
