In March 2018, ILEA Roswell welcomed U.S. Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) to the Academy. Senator Udall (pictured) addressed Delegates from Angola, Botswana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, and Uganda during the opening session for the Executive Policy and Development Symposium on Countering Violent Extremism and Crisis Leadership. He also shared lunch with Delegate Leaders while discussing international law enforcement best practices and challenges regarding current transnational threats.
Senator Udall noted, "I am honored to visit ILEA and speak to the new class of delegates. ILEA Roswell provides an important international service and is a critical part of the community here in Roswell." ILEA Roswell thanks Senator Udall for supporting the ILEA mission of strengthening international law enforcement capacity while creating a global network of law enforcement professionals.
