La Fueza Civil is the state of Nuevo Leon's version of a super police force. The direct translation is "Civil Forces" and is described as a "new force of heroes made up of valiant, intelligent young men and women who are prepared to protect the most precious thing: the security and tranquility of the family." They are a powerful presence in the city patrolling neighborhoods, highways and shopping centers and are often on the side of the road pulling cars over to check for who knows what. Most of the time they are wearing the face masks to prevent the bad guys from finding out who they are.

So, besides these high visibility troops, there is also a State police force, a police force for Monterrey City, and the army of the country. They are very serious about returning Nuevo Leon to it's "glory days" of peace and prosperity.
