Description:
For the similarly named Pakistani institution, see Federal Investigation Agency.
The Federal Investigations Agency (in Spanish: Agencia Federal de Investigación, AFI) was a Mexican federal agency that existed to fight corruption and organized crime, through an executive order by President Vicente Fox Quesada. The AFI replaced an earlier agency, the Federal Judicial Police. The agency was directed by the Attorney General's Office (PGR) and may have been partly modeled on the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the United States. Allegedly, the AFI was differentiated from other Mexican law enforcement agencies to prevent possible "contamination" or corruption by senior personnel of other government organizations.

AFI agents in action often wore masks to prevent themselves from being identified by gang leaders. While AFI agents were uniformed when carrying out raids, "street-level" uniformed federal police patrols and transport terminal security were handled by the Federal Police.

Public Safety Secretary Genaro García Luna hoped to reform the nation's long-troubled police. Among other steps, he consolidated several agencies into a Federal Police force of nearly 25,000.

On 29th May 2009, the Agency was reorganized as the <br>Federal Ministerial Police (or PFM, in Spanish: Policía Federal Ministerial) under the leadership of Nicandra Castro Escarpulli.
