FBI completes local financial & intelligence training
The United States Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigations concluded its three-day financial and intelligence training in Guyana at the Guyana Police Force Officers’ Training Centre last Thursday.
The course aimed to provide foreign law enforcement personnel a baseline understanding of how to fully integrate financial intelligence into criminal investigations as well as to conduct a real-world, practical exercise using real financial intelligence information associated with the foreign law enforcement’s investigative subject(s).
The course provided tools and techniques to analyze financial networks that result in the devolvement of actionable intelligence.
Early this year, the United States Ambassador Perry Holloway also handed over remote video training equipment valued at over $23,000 US dollars to Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud and pledged his Government’s support for similar activities that could ultimately lead to enhancing the security of Caribbean nations.
The equipment allows for enhanced training opportunities and greater coordination among Caribbean Basin Security Initiative nations.
Current participating countries are Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Suriname, St. Kitts and Nevis, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic and Guyana.
