INL Training on Basic Criminal Investigations
The U.S. Embassy and the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) continues to support the development of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia (MOIA) through various trainings aimed at enhancing their investigative, patrolling, leadership, and other essential policing skills. The latest training conducted by Illinois State Police (ISP) instructors on Basic Criminal Investigations was delivered for 45 investigators and other law enforcement in Batumi and Tbilisi from December 5-16. Through classroom discussions and practical scenarios the participants learned about effective investigative tools essential for investigating such crimes as homicide, crimes against children, and human trafficking. This training was offered as part of a cooperative agreement between INL and ISP to support international law enforcement, justice sector reform, and anti-crime efforts around the world. INL looks forward to partnering with ISP next year to offer further trainings to Georgian law enforcement professionals on a variety of subjects.
