The International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA), Roswell
BlueLaw International works with the Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs to provide ILEA Roswell with management and implementation of courses in criminal justice, criminal policy, and legal and regulatory issues for approximately ten sessions per year (thirty-five students per session). Myron Golden serves as its Program Director, with BlueLaw’s Dr. Jorey Krawczyn as Academic Program Director and Susie Russell as Training Coordinator.
While the primary mission of ILEA Roswell is “to promote international cooperation among law enforcement agencies”, ILEA also has the broader goal of raising the level of professionalism in policing and criminal justice systems around the world.
To fulfill these goals, the United States has worked with partner countries to establish four other regional ILEAs across the world, serving Europe, South America, and Asia. Unlike these regional academies, ILEA Roswell focuses on criminal justice from an academic point of view. In addition to communicating the Department of State’s foreign policy objectives to international participants, ILEA Roswell offers an unprecedented opportunity for global collaboration and collegiality in the fight against transnational crime.
