Appendix: AID "Public Safety" Programs

September 25, 2007

The AID Public Safety programs pro-
vide assistance in the form of technical
advice, training, and in some cases limited
amounts of equipment to civil police in
16 Latin American countries. Basic to all
public safety efforts is the developing of a
police institution and the improvement of-
its capability to exercise its proper role in
its country's development. In addition to
improving the police responsibility for
the preservation of law and order and the
protection of life and property, the pro-
grams seek to orient the police to func-
tion as an important community service
and inculcate the concept of "public ser-
vice" in policing, including the protection
of the peoples' rights to dissent within
the boundaries of law.
BOLIVIA: The basic program objec-
tives in Bolivia are (1) to improve and
expand the National Police Academy's
capacity for training, (2) to establish a
country-wide telecommunications system
and (3) to develop a capability for the
provision of adequate police services to
the public in lesser cities and rural areas.
BRAZIL: The Public Safety program
has assisted the Brazilian police in the
installation of a national communications
system and the establishment of federal
law enforcement institutions which pro-
vide training and technical services to the
police of any requesting state within Bra-
zil. To this end, the National Police Aca-
demy, National Institute of Criminalistics
have been established and the National
Telecommunications Training and Main-
tenance Center is nearing completion.
CHILE: The Public Safety program in
Chile has been limited primarily to tech-
nical assistance in the telecommunica-
tions and vehicle fleet management fields.
The basic national telecommunications
installation was completed by the end of
1968; program emphasis is presently be-
ing placed on telecommunication main-
tenance and repair training.
COLOMBIA: The purpose of the Pub-
lic Safety Project in Colombia is to in.
crease the police capabilities to maintain
law and order in a humane manner
through the improvement of training in-
;titutions and assistance in the telecom-
munications and vehicle patrol fields.
Communications equipment has been ex-
tended to 13 of the 22 departments, as
well as to 19 major cities which previous-
ly were lacking such services.
COSTA RICA: The program began in
Costa Rica with fragmented and decen-
tralized public forces in 10 separate agen-
cies. Progress has been made in the estab-
lishment of a National Police School,
organization, administration, and manage-
ment training and in the field of telecom-
munications installation and mainte-
Safety assistance has been provided the
Dominican Republic to rebuild the police
forces after Trujillo by improving mobil-
ity, establishing modern training institu-
tions, expanding and improving the com-
munications network and developing
their maintenance capabilities.
ECUADOR: Public Safety efforts in
Ecuador have been directed toward (1)
providing technical assistance in creating
an adequate police capability in urban
areas, (2) improvement and expansion of
the telecommunications network, (3)
technical assistance in establishing vehicle
maintenance facilities, (4) improvement
in the rural police school and (5) assis-
tance in establishing a central identifica-
tion system.
EL SALVADOR: The Public Safety
program encompasses the civil law en-
forcement agencies and the primary pro-
gram objectives are (I ) to establish a basic
police communications network, (2) im-
plementation of a modern records sys-
tem, (3) improvement of the National
Police School and crime laboratory and
(4) assistance in the reorganization of
patrol zones
GUATEMALA: Public Safety has as-
sisted the police of Guatemala in estab-
lishing a model precinct in Guatemala
City and a model rural town police sys-
tem, in improving the crime and photo
laboratory, in converting the fingerprint
system to conform with other countries
in the Western Hemisphere and in estab-
lishing a mobile crime scene processing
GUYANA: -The purpose of the Public
Safety Project in Guyana is to provide
technical assistance in training, operations
and communications, in addition to assis-
tance in the development of police leader-
ship and expanding planning at the na-
tional level to improve research, budget-
ing and operational procedures.
HONDURAS: The Public Safety pro-
gram in Honduras has devoted its efforts
to the reorganization of the civil security
force and the establishment of a modern
training facility in addition to imple-
menting an effective communications net-
work. Current efforts are devoted to im-
provements in leadership, organization,
.dlllillinla tion and in the police manage-
ment field.
JAMAICA: The Public Safety program
has been designed to assist te Jdmaican
government in carrying out a major reor-
ganization of its police force. This is
being accomplished through technical as-
sistance in the areas of training, adminis-
tration, communication, records, opera
-tions and identification procedures. In
addition, a highway patrol unit has been
established to curb the growing highway
traffic fatalities.
PANAMA: The Public Safety project
assists the government of Panama in cor-
recting deficiencies in organization, ope--
ations, communications, records, patrol.
inspection and training of its forces per-
forming civil police functions. Improve-
ments have resulted in all these areas.

Peru assists three law enforcement agen-
cies, the Civil Guard, the Investigative
Police of Peru and the Republican Guard.
Administrative and organizational assis-
tance in addition to technical advice in
police records and communications have
been the primary efforts of the program.
This program has been greatly reduced
URUGUAY: The Uruguay Public Safe-
ty program provides assistance to highly
decentralized police forces. Pilot mobile
police patrols have been implemented in
the capital city which are serving as exam-
ples to other urban areas, with a substan-
tial decrease in the crime rate. Technical
assistance has also been provided in police
communications, establishment of main-
tenance facilities for both communication
and vehicle repairs and in the field of
training by upgrading the instructional
material in the police training insti-

ment of Venezuela in developing a uni-
fied command and Communications Cen-

MIrTARY by Peter O'Connell
In July Richard Nixon saT up a blu~-ribbn panel" to make a yeaar-long study of the Defense Department's manage- ment, research, procurement, and decision-making machinery. This study would supposedly be a comprehensivee m- view" leading to reforms to "enable the department to perform its national security mission better, and to save the tax- payer money eliminating wasteful practices of the past." For performing this "patriotic" service in the "national interest", Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird contributed $5000.00 to the committee.
Most of the members of the committee have strong ties to the military, big business, racist clubs, elite universities and the Republican Party.
