It appears the federal police are not yet comfortable in giving up the job they originally went there for. Do you really blame them? This is a very important time for the federal police to hold their ground and address corruption throughout the level of the local forces.

One thing to consider is the amount of ground the Juarez cartel has lost within that territory. If the federal police left the area and relied upon the local forces to maintain a minimal level of control, this could be catastrophic. The Sinaloa cartel appears to be waiting for the right moment to take whats left of the Juarez territory and capitalize on this sought after route into the US. This could lead to a much greater amount of violence.

Yes, the people in that area have gone through a great deal of violence since December 2006. Its time to maintain the status quo.
