Merida Initiative: Texas Peace Officers to Train Mexican Law Enforcment

The Texas Tribune: This week Webb County (Laredo, Texas) Sheriff Martin Cuellar, brother of U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, and Ambassador William Brownfield, the Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the Department of State and the Webb County Sheriff’s Department. It will pave the way for U.S. law enforcement officers to train local and state police officers in Mexico — the latest advancement of the Merida Initiative.
