Los Angeles, 24 April 2013 – The Philippine Consulate General in Los Angeles hosted a dinner reception on 23 April 2013 in honor of the participants of the Public Safety Officers Senior Executive Course (PSOSEC) Class 2012-82 and 83. The class was headed by Police Chief Superintendent Dominador Aquino, Jr. of the Philippine Public Safety College, and was accompanied by their counterparts from the Los Angeles Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) led by Assistant Special Agent in Charge Voviette Morgan.
The PSOSEC participants are in Los Angeles to attend the FBI Seminar and Foreign Educational Tour at the FBI Field Office marking another milestone in the security and law enforcement cooperation between the Republic of the Philippines and the United States of America.
This partnership between the PNP and the FBI partnership is on its eight year.
With programs like the Public Safety Officers Security Executive Course, bilateral law enforcement cooperation has reached new levels: Philippine and U.S. agencies have cooperated in their campaign against criminality and terrorism, drug and human trafficking, search and rescue and disaster response, implementation of their extradition treaty, and training of Filipino law enforcement officers. The United States has been helping the Philippine National Police with its Transformation Program.
