The Center for Research and National Security (CISEN) is a civil entity controlled by the office of the Minister of the Interior. Its mission is to generate intelligence to safeguard Mexico 's National Security.
In order to perform the actions necessary to fulfill its mission under the rule of law, CISEN observes Laws & Regulations, just like any other agency under the authority of the Federal Executive. The CISEN community is dedicated to serve Mexico while observing international standards of legality and democracy.
CISEN exercises technical, operative and budgetary autonomy, which means that it organizes its activities with certain independence but is still subject to controls executed by members of both the Legislative Branch and the Judicial Branch of the Federal Government, in the implementation of the National Security Act.
CISEN does not have any authority regarding topics such as the police force, public safety, crime prevention or law enforcement.
