The International Academy for Law Enforcement (ILEA) San Salvador closed its fourth “Leadership Development Program” for 35 law enforcers from Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Peru and El Salvador.
The course is a program for law enforcement officers in mid-level management positions and other professionals at the same level in the law enforcement community. The issues addressed in the course included: leadership and management, combating terrorism, border issues, criminal and financial investigations, narcotics, gang activities and other related topics.
Charge d’Affaires Johnson’s speech highlighted the importance of the work done at ILEA. The U.S. diplomat said, “The U.S. government and its people are betting decisively on fighting transnational and organized crime. We are convinced that this fight is not the fight of one nation, but of a group of nations.”
“We believe in providing training excellence in this area because we believe we can make major changes in the fight against organized crime, and we know that you are willing to fight for that goal,” he concluded.
So far this year, ILEA San Salvador has trained more than 950 people in the region of the Caribbean Islands, Central and South America through 4 leadership development courses and 24 specialized courses.
