The increase of cartel violence comes after the new deputy director of a Mexican city was murdered by members of the Sinaloa Cartel, which is Mexico's most powerful drug cartel.
Juan Miguel Silva Alvarado was announced as the new deputy director of the Culiacan Municipal Police just hours before his death.
Mr Alvarado was travelling in a convoy of three patrol cars before being stopped by a group of Sinaloa Cartel members outside an office building.
Officers in the convoy as well as Alvarado's bodyguards were asked to give up their firearms before Mr Alvarado attempted to flee the patrol car and enter a building to hide before he was fatally shot.
