Office of Criminal Justice Assistance and Partnership (INL/CAP)

As part of the U.S. government's mission to support the development of stable democracies, especially in areas that have suffered from years of civil strife, INL/CAP provides assistance to INL, the broader Department of State, the U.S. government interagency and international partners to build the capacity of host nation justice systems to prevent or eliminate transnational crime, strengthen governance and prevent conflict. INL/CAP employs subject matter experts in law enforcement, justice, gender, and corrections who regularly advise on justice sector issues in countries where INL is active, conduct program assessments and reviews, assist with program development and implementer identification, and serve on program evaluation teams. INL/CAP also takes the lead for the Bureau in developing partnerships with U.S. state and local law enforcement, departments of corrections, and justice organizations across the United States to provide technical expertise to support criminal justice development and reform. INL/CAP also builds the capacity of countries deploying police to UN and regional peacekeeping operations.

INL/PC conducts public affairs and public outreach, Congressional engagement, multilateral affairs (working with the United Nations, Organization of American States, Group of Seven, European Union, and others) as well as special projects, including coordination of the annual International Narcotics Control Strategy Report (INCSR) and the President’s annual List of Major Drug Source and Transit Countries, for the INL Bureau. INL/PC also operates drug demand reduction programs around the world and manages INL’s policy formulation, to include objectives for drug control and crime-prevention strategies implemented throughout INL, by the Department writ large and by the U.S. interagency.
