The International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA San Salvador) worked with experts from two major U.S. security agencies, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLTEC) and the Diplomatic Security Service (DSS), to conduct this week's training.
A total of 62 law enforcement officials from the Bahamas, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Jamaica, Panama, Dominican Republic, Suriname, Uruguay, and El Salvador participated, trained on two important topics: Leadership for Supervisors in Law Enforcement and Overseas protection abroad.
The Law Enforcement Supervisor Leadership course focused on current leadership practices to effectively respond to the leadership's challenges in the law's culture and environment. This program focused on the new skills of law enforcement leaders in the key pillars of leadership, people, processes, and technology.
As for the Overseas Protection Operations course, law enforcement personnel were taught about security and protection operations used by the Diplomatic Security Service of the United States of America. The classes also included a broad and improved overview of the historical perspective of security and protection of individuals, an introduction to the fundamentals of protection, as well as practices that allowed students to apply the methods and techniques learned in their classroom hours.
So far this year, ILEA San Salvador has trained nearly 500 Law Enforcement Officers from Central and South America and the Caribbean Islands, highlighting that 59 Salvadorans have been trained.
