OAS - Department of Public Security - PICAP

The improvement of public security in the Americas relies, to a great extent, on the consolidation of police institutions.  Against this background, the DPS has launched the Inter-American Police Training Program (PICAP) as one of its central priorities.  This program seeks to promote tools for the control and prevention of crime and violence through the transfer of experiences, the exchange of information and the analysis of the political action led by the OAS Member States. 

Hence PICAP seeks to promote the training of the police; to develop a model-curriculum for the modernization of police education; to organize training modules in order to facilitate the exchange of information between the National Police Academies as a way to foster the exchange of experiences and mutual cooperation in this area.
