Program Overview

Cambodia continues to face many institutional weaknesses that threaten to undermine its progress as a stable country. Cambodian law enforcement capacity remains quite low and the country faces growing narcotics production, trafficking, and consumption problems. Corruption remains pervasive in Cambodia, making it highly vulnerable to penetration by drug traffickers and foreign crime syndicates. U.S. assistance will combat narcotics trafficking and crime through targeted technical assistance to strengthen Cambodia’s law enforcement institutions and personnel.

Program Goals and Objectives

The Cambodia program supports the embassy’s FY 2012 Mission Strategic and Resource Plan priorities of A Responsible Regional and International Actor in Partnership with the United States and A Sustainable Democracy that Adheres to the Rule of Law and Respects Human Rights and INL’s FY 2012 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goals of Building Criminal Justice Systems, Transnational Crime, and Counternarcotics.

Objective 1: Provide reform-based assistance to law enforcement sectors to promote transparency and build capacities to deter and prevent national and transnational security threats, in a manner consistent with the rule of law, international human rights standards, and internationally accepted management practices.

Objective 2: Reduce avenues for transnational crime and illegal commerce by improving security force management and operational capacities.

Program Overview

Over the past twenty years, China’s political system has undergone serious and fundamental changes. China’s efforts to establish a legal framework consistent with rule of law principles have prompted a vigorous and open debate within China’s judicial, scholarly, and policy communities about possible future reforms. The United States’ interest in China stems not only from its vast economic and political influence in East Asia and the Pacific, South and Central Asia and beyond, but also from the massive flow of precursor chemicals that are diverted for illicit use from within its borders, a desire to increase law enforcement cooperation as part of the U.S.-China Joint Liaison Group on Law Enforcement Cooperation (JLG), and ongoing concerns about human rights that draw the regular attention of the U.S. Government and the international community. Our program focuses on increasing U.S. understanding of the Chinese legal system, and vice versa, and influencing China toward greater law enforcement cooperation with the Unites States.

Program Goals and Objectives

The China program supports the embassy’s FY 2012 Mission Strategic and Resource Plan priorities of Law Enforcement and Counterterrorism and Support for U.S. Policies and Values and INL’s FY 2012 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goal of Building Criminal Justice Systems.

Objective 1: To promote criminal justice sector reform.

Objective 2: To increase awareness of U.S. policies, practices, and legal frameworks to enhance understanding and facilitate increased law enforcement cooperation.

FY 2012 Program

Rule of Law and Human Rights

Program Overview

Throughout the East Asia and Pacific (EAP) region, porous borders, long cultural traditions of smuggling, expansive and largely unpatrolled maritime routes, abundant valuable natural resources, and under-funded law enforcement institutions create conditions under which domestic, regional and international criminals flourish. It is also a situation conducive to the free movement of terrorists. In order to effectively counter cross-border crime, police and other security forces in the region must work together more effectively, sharing information and supporting each other’s operational efforts. There is a clear and primary need to strengthen cooperation among law enforcement officials in the region, including through the sub-regional Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), to build regional and sub-regional law enforcement capacity to interdict illegally trafficked goods, substances, and people, and to effectively investigate cases, counter terrorism, and dismantle organized crime syndicates. The EAP Regional program will provide mobile training opportunities to considerably larger numbers of officers in each country, on their own ground, and also insert robust cross-border liaison components into the curriculum.

Program Goals and Objectives

The EAP Regional program supports the Bureau of East Asia and Pacific Affairs’ FY 2012 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan (BSRP) goal of Meeting Security Challenges in Asia by Enhancing Ties with Allies and Partners and INL’s FY 2012 BSRP goal of Building Criminal Justice Systems.

Objective 1: To disrupt and suppress the movement of illicit goods throughout Southeast Asia, including narcotics and other contraband, some of which is ultimately destined for the United States.

Objective 2: To facilitate cooperation among law enforcement agencies in Southeast Asia to help them address cross-border crime, as well as to enhance the security and stability of the ASEAN sub-region and EAP region more broadly.

Objective 3: To combat corruption within and among law enforcement agencies.

FY 2012 Program

Stabilization Operations and Security Sector Reform

This project builds regional countries’ capacities to combat transnational security threats posed by terrorism and illicit cross-border trafficking of narcotics and other contraband, as well as money laundering, trafficking in persons and piracy at sea, among other things, through training, technical assistance and equipment donations.

Program Overview

Indonesia is a strategic partner for the United States with growing regional and global influence. Indonesia is also home to the terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), and has been the target of several deadly terrorist attacks over the past decade. Since the start of INL assistance in 2000, the Government of Indonesia (GOI) has embraced institutional reform of its law enforcement organizations and criminal justice system. The continued development of an effective civilian police force and support for prosecutorial and judicial reform will ensure Indonesia remains a key partner for the United States in combating transnational crime and terrorism.

Program Goals and Objectives

The Indonesia program supports the embassy’s FY 2012 Mission Strategic and Resource Plan priorities of Promoting Good Governance and Strengthening Civil Society and Enhancing Cooperation with Indonesia on Counterterrorism and Regional Stability and INL’s FY 2012 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goals of Building Criminal Justice Systems and Counternarcotics.

Objective 1: To build a sustainable whole of government approach, including civilian law enforcement and other relevant government agencies, to develop effective, modern, democratic, and professional law enforcement institutions with the capacity to combat maritime threats, conduct investigations, respond to manmade and natural disasters, develop policies in line with international standards, and enhance training curricula and protect human rights.

Program Overview

Laos, until recently the world’s third largest producer of opium, has reduced cultivation to historically low levels by Laos’ standards. However, the last several years have seen noticeable increases in opium cultivation, and hundreds of pounds of opium from Laos are interdicted in the U.S. each year. In addition, after years of steady declines in opium addiction, the number of addicts remains high, and abuse of amphetamine-type substances (ATS) has proliferated throughout Laos in recent years. The program will also combat the rise in narcotics-related drug trafficking, a rise in contraband smuggling, and improve the criminal justice system more effective criminal prosecutions.

Program Goals and Objectives

The Laos program supports the embassy’s FY 2012 Mission Strategic and Resource Plan priorities of Strengthening the Criminal Justice System and Law Enforcement and Advancing Democratic Values and Human Rights and INL’s FY 2012 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goals of Counternarcotics and Building Criminal Justice Systems.

Objective 1: Significantly disrupt the movement of illicit drugs from Laos to the United States by reducing the total amount of opium cultivation.

Objective 2: Assist criminal justice sector institutions to investigate and prosecute drug traffickers, improve contraband interdiction, and improve the criminal justice system.

Objective 3: Assist addicts in receiving effective treatment, rehabilitation, occupational therapy and after care services to reduce the demand for drugs in Laos.

FY 2012 Program

Stabilization Operations and Security Sector Reform

Law Enforcement Support will expand Lao provincial and district police’s knowledge of current trafficking methods, capabilities, investigation techniques, and the use of simple technology to make them more effective and reliable partners for U.S. law enforcement in combating narcotics trafficking. The project will also work with the Lao Customs Department to improve the interdiction of opium parcels shipments to the United States, as well as of contraband generally.

Counternarcotics

Drug Awareness/Demand Reduction

Drug Awareness/Demand Reduction Project will implement a modern media campaign and innovative materials to increase drug awareness and deter youth from abusing drugs.

Program Overview

Timor-Leste is Asia’s poorest and most fragile democracy. Since achieving independence in 2002, Timor-Leste has suffered from a pattern of political violence and instability. Given the geographic location of Timor-Leste, situated between United States treaty ally Australia and strategic partner Indonesia, the U.S. commitment to security and stability of this fragile nation is imperative. The United States’ highest priority in Timor-Leste is to enhance the ability of the Timorese government to extend the current period of stability and security for its citizens, which will set the foundation for sustained, long-term economic and social development.

Program Goals and Objectives

The continued INCLE assistance will be coordinated with the new FY 2010 Department of Defense 1207 project. The Timor-Leste program supports the embassy’s FY 2012 Mission Strategic and Resource Plan priorities of Security and Stability Bolstered by Improved Capacity of Timorese Security Forces and Foundations for Good Governance Strengthened and INL’s FY 2012 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goals of Building Criminal Justice Systems and Counternarcotics.

Objective 1: To help build capacity among criminal justice sector institutions to provide internal security and combat transnational criminal threats.

Objective 2: To assist the Timorese justice system in developing capacity to manage simple and complex criminal cases.

Objective 3: To prepare the Government of Timor-Leste (GOTL) for taking over internal security responsibilities from the United Nations Police force (UNPOL) following their expected departure in 2012.
