The purpose of this project is the accreditation of management practices and delivery of law enforcement services of Mexican law enforcement agencies, emergency communications centers and police academies (here in after referred as Mexican agencies) according to standards that meet international standards.
Mexican law enforcement agencies are evaluated with regard to major law enforcement areas such as:
1) Roles, responsibilities and relationships with other agencies; 2) Organization, management and administration; 3) Personnel Administration; 4) Law Enforcement operations, operation support and traffic law enforcement; 5) Detainee and court-related services; and 6) Auxiliary and technical services.
The accreditation process provides a structured mechanism for Mexican law enforcement agencies to improve their management practices and the delivery of law enforcement services to their communities.
Subject to the availability of funds and pending Department of State management approvals, INL intends to issue an award in an amount not to exceed $7,000,000 in total funding.
The U. S. Dollar amount will be funded from INL allocated funds, for an initial project period of five (5) years.
INL reserves the right to fund any number of applications or none of the applications submitted and will determine the resulting level of funding for each award(s).
