As part of the International Law Enforcement Academy’s (ILEA) commitment to fostering a culture of violence prevention in young people, ILEA invited 28 young people from the Glasswing International project to participate in a day of activities at the facilities of the Administration for the Control of the Drug (DEA). The goal of the visit was to promote social coexistence, police engagement with citizens, and first-hand knowledge of the work done by the law enforcement officers.
The youth of the National Institute Professor Jaime Francisco Lopez de San Salvador had the opportunity to interact in a fun and educational way with DEA law enforcement officers and instructors who have extensive experience in the fight against drug trafficking.
