APD recognized by U.S. State Department

The Atlanta Police Department was recognized Monday by the U.S. Department of State for providing police training in Timor-Leste.

Per a 2011 agreement between the State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs and the APD, two Atlanta officers were deployed to the Southeast Asia country for six months last year to provide law enforcement training. According to the State Department, Atlanta is one of more than 50 U.S. law enforcement agencies to participate in the program designed to combat international criminal enterprises.
