The Sexual Diversity Unit will be overseen by the DNIC. The unit will work closely with local LGBT-rights advocates and organizations.
According to Oscar Aguilar, the Spokesman for the DINIC, “We know that many of these crimes are left unresolved due to a failure in determining the real causes, why they were committed, and that is the reason why the Sexual Diversity Unit was launched, to try to resolve them.”
“There are a number of agents dedicated to conducting research, along with a public prosecutor, who will be a permanent part of the unit. It is intended to respond to the immediate family,” he added.
The officers will undergo special training to learn specifically about the LGBT Community.
