Ukraine: ICITAP Partners with State Department to Strengthen Security Across Country

On May 19, ICITAP-Ukraine’s mission advisory team delivered an extremely detailed and well-organized presentation with tremendous graphics and videos to 152 interagency and international partners about ICITAP’s law enforcement assistance and security mission, covering the context, history, successes, challenges, and opportunities of ICITAP’s work in Ukraine. Since 2005, ICITAP has maintained a full-time presence in Ukraine providing assistance to multiple Ukrainian law enforcement agencies to include the National Police of Ukraine (NPU), the Patrol Police Department (PPD), the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine (SBGSU) and the Counter-Narcotics Department (CND). ICITAP assistance includes training and mentoring, infrastructure construction, equipment and materials donations. ICITAP efforts are focused on the design and implementation of policies, procedures and modern law enforcement strategies that support sustainable institutional reform. ICITAP’s program in Ukraine is funded by the State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL), the Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation (ISN), Export Control and Related Border Security (EXBS) program, and the Non-proliferation and Disarmament Fund (NDF) Office. Thanks to ICITAP’s partnership with DOJ’s Office of Public Affairs (OPA), State/INL, and the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, OPA released the following tweet: https://twitter.com/USDOJ_Intl/status/1395419221824319489
