Mexico | Police Professionalization Exchange Program – Internal Affairs

May 13, 2018 - May 16, 2018

May 13 – 16, 2018

Country: Mexico

Project: Police Professionalization Exchange Program – “Internal Affairs”

World Affairs Council is working with Global Ties U.S., in partnership with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City, to implement a project of the Police Professionalization Exchange Program (PPEP) for Mexican senior law enforcement officials. The program has four components, with some participants engaging in one and others in two or more:

  • Online learning as pre-arrival training for officials traveling to the United States, or as a separate course for a larger pool of officials who will be trained virtually
  • On-site training at various U.S. police academies
  • Professional study tour experiences in cities across the U.S., exploring themes such as internal affairs
  • Hands-on training in Mexico by U.S. or regional experts based on the priorities of U.S.-Mexico security cooperation

The four components were intentionally designed to create a multi-dimensional professional development program. Most program participants are chiefs or deputy chiefs of state and large municipal police agencies, as well as directors or chief academic officers of state and large municipal police academies.
