US OFFICERS TO TRAIN BORDER POLICE
Six officers from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement will arrive in Struga on Monday to train the Macedonian Border Police Officers.
The U.S. officers will train the Macedonian border police in methods used to track persons suspected of smuggling and other illegal activities in border areas.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security will donate a $40.000 worth of technical equipment to the Macedonian Border Police.
The training is part of U.S. Embassy support for Macedonia's efforts to ensure that its borders are secure against the illegal movement of goods and people. It is a follow-up of the similar training conducted in 2007.
