The IACP’s planning for its 11th South American Executive Policing Conference went into high gear during March with the IACP’s International Vice President Nelson Garcia and International Policing Division Director Paul Santiago meeting with senior police officials in Brasília, the Brazilian capital, as well as the site for the conference, Rio de Janeiro.
In Brasília, they met with the National Secretary of Public Safety, Ms. Regina Miki; the IACP World Regional Office Vice-Chair for South America, Ms. Alice Nascimento, who is also the Director of the Highway Patrol; as well as the Minister of Justice, Eduardo Cardozo. Both the meetings with Secretary Miki and Minister Cardozo secured support and enthusiasm from the highest tiers of law enforcement leadership in that country.
Vice-President Garcia and Director Santiago then moved on to Rio de Janeiro where they spent time with the conference host, Secretary for Public Safety for the State of Rio de Janeiro, Mr. Mariano Beltrame, where they discussed a myriad of conference related topics. They also met with the conference program committee, made up of senior representatives from all the National Law Enforcement Councils in Brazil, who will be working together to build the conference program.
The 11th South American Executive Policing Conference will take place August 18-20, 2013, at the RioCentro Convention Center. Accompanying the IACP’s conference will be the largest law enforcement services and products exposition in the region, known as INTERSEG, run by IACP’s long time partner, FAGGA Eventos.
