ILEA participants graduate from Financial Investigative Techniques course

This morning, the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA San Salvador), successfully closed the course on financial investigative techniques, which had the participation of law enforcement officials from Argentina, Bahamas, Bolivia, Brazil, Peru, Dominican Republic, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and El Salvador.

The Financial Investigative Techniques course was taught by experts of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) of the United States of America.

Since most crimes involve financial transactions, financial investigative and forensic accounting techniques can be used in order to prove the crime. Those who break the law more often than not seek to make a profit; this course will help law enforcement professionals combat the fraudulent movement of money. The training course fostered participation and the exchange of information and experience among the participants. The participants are expected to become multipliers of this knowledge once they are back in their countries of origin.

The closing ceremony remarks were given by the Deputy Director of ILEA for the Government of the United States of America, Roberto Bryan, who expressed and shared his enthusiasm with the ILEA graduates knowing that they are now better prepared to fight transnational crime.
