Law enforcement officers were trained on Interagency Cooperation

The International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA San Salvador) closed this Friday the Interagency Cooperation for Financial Investigations Training Course, a week-long course developed by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Internal Revenue Service of the United States of America (IRS).

This training focused on the importance of interagency collaboration to join efforts, pool resources, share experiences, legal tools and investigative techniques to solve crimes where financial gain is the motive for the crime.

A total of 22 law enforcement officers from Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis, Uruguay and El Salvador participated in the course, which explored methods for tracing money, identifying assets for confiscation purposes and estimate the amount of illegal proceeds from criminal structures.
