Posted on Jan 02, 2017
Between January 9th and January 27th, Graduate School USA’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) team will administer a project titled “Law Enforcement: Community Policing.”
The 7 participants from various countries in Latin America include journalists, national police chiefs, and a commander of a police pacification unit. The project begins in Washington, DC where visitors will be introduced to the U.S. law enforcement system and community policing in the U.S.
The international visitors will spend a day in Baltimore, MD in order to learn about the efforts by law enforcement to regain community trust. The participants will also travel to Iowa City, IA, Los Angeles, CA, and San Antonio, TX. Topics to be examined in these cities include countering gender-based violence and programs for youth to reduce and prevent crime.
In addition to meeting with representatives from organizations such as the U.S. Department of Justice and Serve DC, which offers community emergency preparedness training, the visitors will be participating in police ride-alongs and volunteer activities.
These interactive experiences in both urban and rural settings will demonstrate how local police departments engage with their communities in order to enhance the safety and quality of neighborhoods.
