United States police specialists trained instructors of police academies in Costa Rica and Panama on techniques to improve their education to police officers.

According to the U.S. Embassy, ​​the Costa Ricans and Panamanian students completed the course developed by specialists from the U.S. Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, WHINSEC.

WHINSEC, formerly known as the School of the Americas, is a U.S. Department of Defense Institute located at Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia, with about 250 assigned military and civilian personnel from the U.S. and partner nations. It presents 38-40 iterations of 18 resident courses to more than 1,300 students each year, according to the Institute.

The course was sponsored by the U.S. Embassy’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, INL, to help the National Police Academy standardize the development of lesson plans and improve instructor training techniques and best practices, added the embassy in its statement.



According to the Ministry of Security, the course was taught from April 12 to 23 at the headquarters of the National Police Academy located in Pococí Canton, Limón Province.

The training was provided by U.S. instructors with the support of Costa Rican instructors where 15 Costa Ricans and 16 Panamanians graduated.

"The course was developed on classroom management techniques and methods for effective communication," the ministry said in its statement. "Likewise, the training allows new instructors to practice many teaching strategies and methods for education."

Among the topics that were developed in the courses were democracy, human rights, foundations in teaching and learning, among others, added the ministry
