Fighting Crime and Corruption

The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) has integrated efforts across a spectrum of bilateral, regional, and international initiatives building up law enforcement capabilities of foreign governments to combat the increasing linkage between drugs, crime, and corruption. INL works to reinforce the international network of laws and conventions against the narcotics trade, corruption, and gang-related and international organized crime demonstrating the real-world value of cooperation. The Bureau’s policies and programs work to promote stable environments, good governance, and stronger civic institutions for our partners.

International Law Enforcement Academies

A world-wide network of International Law Enforcement Academies (ILEAs) was created to combat international drug trafficking, criminality, and terrorism through strengthened international cooperation. Serving four regions: Europe, Africa, South America, and Asia; ILEAs help protect American citizens and businesses, buttress democratic governance through the rule of law, enhance the functioning of free markets through improved legislation and law enforcement, and increase social, political, and economic stability.

Anticorruption Initiatives

Any effective anti-crime/anti-terrorism program must also attack corruption, and INL plays a leading role in supporting several global, regional, and bilateral anti-corruption initiatives. Committed to strengthening the international fight against corruption, INL has pursued a mix of diplomatic and programmatic efforts to attain four primary international anticorruption goals including: uniting governments under common commitments; helping governments meet or exceed those commitments; mobilizing popular will and private sector action; and leading by example. By recognizing and helping to shape international norms to counter corruption, the U.S. Government opens the door to better bilateral and multilateral cooperation on traditionally local fronts.
