English term or phrase: appropriate local enforcement agencies
officials report all crimes committed to appropriate local enforcement agencies.

This was translated:

Los oficiales reportan todos los crimenes cometidos a las agencias juridicas locales apropiadas.

Can you tell me if local enforcement agencies it's the same as agencias juridicas?

Thanks for your help!

Sorry Sandra!!!..I forgot to include "appropriate"
Explanation:
I would put it like this:
"Autoridades Locales Competentes de Procuración de Justicia".
It might sound a bit "long-winded" but that's what it should be.

Autoridades Locales de Procuración de Justicia


Explanation:
Hi Sandra!
No, I don't agree with the translation you were given. This obviously refers to Law Enforcement Agencies such as the police, etc. I would suggest the above as that is what is most common in Mexico.

Hope this helps:-)

órganos de persecución penal competentes / seccional de policía competente


Explanation:
Respondí esta pregunta (en exactamente la misma frase (¿?) hace unos días...

(law) enforcement agencies son los órganos estatales de persecución penal, este es el término jurídico correcto.
A nivel local, esto es (para ser preciso y concreto) la seccional de policía.
Y appropriate no se puede traducir aquí con apropriado, el término jurídico correcto es "competente".

Espero haberte ayudado..

Explanation:
appropriate local enforcement agencies seems to be the fittest of the translations although the right translation has yet to be defined.
