National Police Foundation conducts virtual site visits, hosts webinars to continue CALEA Accreditation process for agencies in Mexico 

May 10, 2020—COVID-19 has not prevented the National Police Foundation’s International Team from continuing to provide quality technical assistance as public safety agencies throughout Mexico continue to work toward accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).

With funding support from the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, the National Police Foundation is currently providing technical assistance to 75 public safety agencies, including municipal law enforcement agencies, communications centers, and training academies, throughout Mexico in order to help agencies achieve CALEA Accreditation.

Our Mexico team has continued its delivery of services without a hitch through virtual visits to the grant client agencies that we work with in Mexico, beginning with our successful pilot virtual visit to the state of Quintana Roo. Our virtual visits include initial evaluation and pre-audit mock visits, which were built from the input of staff and partners with direct involvement in CALEA Accreditation in Mexico. Our team continues to serve as a tremendous resource of knowledge for the community of practice growing in Mexico.

To ensure that the National Police Foundation is best able to share our knowledge of best practices with law enforcement in Mexico during these times, our first in a series of Spanish-language webinars, titled Integridad Policial or “Police Integrity”, was presented by NPF Regional Manager Alonso Méndez, who shared his best practices to combat corruption and organizational deficiencies through his experience as a police executive in Mexico and through his extensive research of academic publications.
