The U.S. Department of State’s Office of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) at the U.S. Embassy in Beirut is sponsoring a leadership and management training seminar for 19 high-ranking Lebanese police officials. The January 16-27 training will be conducted by the University of Louisville’s Southern Police Institute, as part of the U.S. government’s efforts to support security and stability in Lebanon through the provision of assistance to Lebanon’s criminal justice sector, including the Internal Security Forces (ISF).
The goal of the training is to support increasing professional development, practical skills, and knowledge on policing theories and practices. Participants will learn about best practices and strategies utilized by local, state, and national law enforcement officials to develop and enhance relationships with the community and to promote sharing of information and policing strategies. The participants will have meetings with the FBI, Kentucky State Police, Metro Government Office of Performance Initiatives, Louisville Metro Police Department, Southern Police Institute, University of Louisville, and other law enforcement experts.
