The International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA), in coordination with instructors from the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the United States of America (FBI), trained 35 law enforcement officials from Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, and El Salvador on Anti-Terrorism Law Enforcement Techniques.
The main objective of this course was to analyze the trends and mechanisms of terrorism and to highlight the importance of regional communication as part of a proactive effort to combat terrorism, since, in this way, law enforcement officials, from participant nations, can better serve their countries in reaching agreements, through international communication networks, with other law enforcement officials who investigate this type of crime throughout the region.
ILEA San Salvador firmly believes that this type of training will allow participants to improve and update their knowledge, which will lead to a wealth of institutionalized experience in the prevention, identification, investigation, disruption, dismantling and prosecution of terrorism.
Justice system representatives were grateful to be a part of this network of colleagues and new strategic friends, as they will facilitate a common front against transnational crime.
