Detroit Tigers pitcher's mother kidnapped

CARACAS, Venezuela -- The mother of Detroit Tigers pitcher Ugueth Urbina was kidnapped by four unidentified men disguised as police officers, police said Thursday.

The men took Maura Villareal from a house owned by Urbina in suburban Caracas on Wednesday, said Joel Rengifo, director of the country's anti-kidnapping police force. The men have not contacted family members, he said.


I'm surprised this kind of thing doesn't happen more often. Guys leave impoverished countries and start earning millions. I just hope this turns out OK.

however ...

I couldn't help but notice the mention of "the country's anti-kidnapping police force". Just what IS that? I mean the name sounds so odd, I assume they investigate and solve kidnapping cases but it sounds more like a group that tries to prevent kidnapping. How would you do that?
