Aware of the greater challenges that affect States in the Americas, as well as their populations, the improvement of public security has become a priority in the national and international political agendas and there is growing consensus on the necessity to strengthen institutional capacities to prevent and combat crime, violence and insecurity in the region. Hence, the OAS General Secretariat, with the support of its member states, has promoted the elaboration and consolidation of an institutional architecture, whose main political body is the Meeting of Ministers Responsible for Public Security in the Americas (MISPA). The objective is to strengthen the dialogue between key stakeholders as a means to reach a more effective cooperation, to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, to promote technical assistance and the exchange of promising practices in this area.
