This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for four boarder security officials from Brazil, Greece, Hong Kong, and Poland and their U.S. State Dept. liaison, who will be visiting Detroit to examine Toward a More Safe and Secure World: International Crime Issues.
The delegation's program in Detroit, MI will provide security leaders an opportunity to learn about community efforts to combat violent extremism, to focus on border and port security, and city experiences with international crime and security issues.
A lot of people spend half their lives to get the opportunity to meet the people that we met in just 10 days [in Detroit]. This concentration of knowledge and resources brought me one step closer to being global.
The opportunity to welcome and work with international delegations visiting Detroit provides a very rich experience. To be engaged in this work is significant and very rewarding. The world is becoming smaller every day and Global Ties Detroit contributes greatly in building strong bridges with people and nations across the globe.
