ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- The manager of the Counter Narcotics Operational Team in the Office of National Drug and Money Laundering Control Policy (ONDCP) in Antigua and Barbuda, Marcia Edwards, is traveling to the United States to participate in the US Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP).

She will take part in a three-week project on “Community Responsiveness -- Leadership in Law Enforcement” from February 27 until March 17.

During the program, participants will meet police administrators and trainers, civil rights and community activists, victim advocacy groups, and police union representatives to explore issues affecting community and police relations.

They will examine US local, state, and federal efforts to foster and implement community policing in police departments; explore best practices in building trust and transparency between communities and police departments; demonstrate the variety of current training and the organizational structures of local police departments; and demonstrate how community input has made an impact.

The program begins on February 27 in Washington, DC, and includes travel to at least four cities across the United States, including Baltimore, Maryland; Seattle, Washington, Orlando, Florida; and Reno, Nevada. It ends in New York City, New York.

The IVLP is the Department of State’s premier, professional exchange program. The program brings together emerging leaders in their respective professions to learn how US experts in that profession operate and to share best practices with the other program candidates who hail from the same region and across the globe.
