The Attorney General of Mexico (Spanish: Procurador General de la República) (English: Attorney General of the Republic) is the head of the Office of the General Prosecutor (Procuraduría General de la República, PGR) and the Federal Public Ministry (Ministerio Público de la Federación), an institution belonging to the Federal Government's executive branch that is responsible for the investigation and prosecution of federal crimes. The office is governed mainly by the Constitution of Mexico and the Organic Law of the Attorney General's Office (Ley Orgánica de la Procuraduría General de la República). The Attorney General is a member of the President's Cabinet.


The head of the PGR is Raúl Cervantes Andrade, who succeeded Arely Gómez González, both lawyers and members of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI).


The Attorney General's Office is organized into several subordinate entities, including five Under-Attorney General Offices (Legal and International Affairs, Regional Control and Criminal Procedures, Specialized in Organized Crime, Specialized in Federal Crimes, Human Rights and Community Services, Prosecutor Offices such as the Specialized in Electoral Crimes, the Federal Investigations Agency, and the National Center for Planning, Analysis and Information for Combating Crime (Centro Nacional de Planeación, Análisis e Información para el Combate a la Delincuencia, CENAPI).

  • Air Fleet

    Many fixed-wing aircraft of the PGR were obtained after confiscated, so their air fleet consists of various types, of which very few of them are appropriate to the tasks against drug trafficking. Its current fleet consists of Commander Gulfstream jets 840, 900, 980 to 1000, Learjet, Citation I and II, and Grumman. They also operate several types of Cessna and Beechcraft King Air aircraft.

    During the administration of President Fox, most of the PGR's air fleet - just over 100 units - was abandoned because required maintenance had not been performed. In November 2007, during the administration of President Felipe Calderon, the PGR transferred 58 helicopters to the Ministry of National Defense (SEDENA) to be fixed and readied to work in the eradication of illegal drug crops. In 2008, the PGR submitted an official request to the Ministry of Finance to purchase 30 new Eurocopter helicopters for surveillance and interception.
