International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs

The U.S. State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) assists the Government of Georgia (GOG) to strengthen the rule of law through practical skills training for law enforcement officers, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and judges.  INL efforts also focus on improving local capacity to fight transnational crime, including human trafficking and narcotics trafficking, and advancing implementation of criminal procedure reforms to create a justice system that meets international standards, enhances regional stability and security, and helps support Georgia’s Euro-Atlantic integration.

For more than a decade, INL has implemented various law enforcement, criminal justice, and rule of law projects and held trainings locally and overseas. INL funds a number of implementers, including the Resident Legal Adviser Office of the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Overseas Prosecutorial Development, Assistance and Training (DOJ/ODPAT), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the Rule of Law Initiative of the American Bar Association (ABA-ROLI), and the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA) in Budapest, Hungary.
