75 International Security Officials Collaborate With U.S. Counterparts To Combat Transnational Crime

By R. Mitchell

International law enforcement, security, counternarcotics, and judicial officials arrived in the United States this week for the fifth annual Towards a More Safe and Secure World International Visitor Leadership Program. Participants from 56 countries will meet with their counterparts in 16 U.S. cities to increase efforts to combat transnational crime and counter terrorism.

The 2019 initiative will begin in Washington, D.C. with plenary sessions at the U.S. Department of State and National Defense University, featuring top public and private sector security experts. The visitors will then travel to small and mid-sized cities across the United States to meet with federal, regional, and local law enforcement officers and public officials. Consultations will focus on mutual threats related to terrorism, border security, narcotics trafficking, money laundering, cyber security, and trafficking in persons.

The three-week initiative will conclude with a Multijurisdictional Counterdrug Taskforce Training program at the new St. Petersburg Police Department in Tampa, Florida, followed by the annual Combating Transnational Crime Global Cooperation Conference, co-hosted with the Federal Bureau of Investigation New York Field Office.
