St. Maarten Police gets American DEA-training next week

POSTED: 02/6/13

St. Maarten – The United States Drug Enforcement Agency DEA will give training to members of the police force next week.

The training covers a wide range of topics including shooting range weapons training, officer safety, investigative techniques and tactical analysis, and legal procedures for intelligence-sharing and extraditions.

This week more than twenty members of the police force in Curacao underwent a similar training.

At the beginning of the training program on Monday, U.S. and Curacao officials stressed their common goals in improving local security and fighting international crime.

DEA Country Attaché Greg Garza stressed that it is important for officers to do their job well, but the most important part of their job is to make sure they go home safe at the end of the day. The training will also prepare law enforcement officers to practice safety procedures while they are on duty.
