Haiti faces serious security challenges exacerbated in the last decade by a catastrophic earthquake and category 4 hurricane that affected millions of citizens and caused massive destruction and displacement. In the aftermath, anti-government protests, kidnappings, and gang warfare continue to disrupt life in Haiti. To build the capacity of Haiti’s criminal justice system to respond to the growing insecurity, the Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) has partnered with Strategic Capacity Group (SCG) to deliver training, technical assistance, and mentoring for Haiti’s police and justice institutions and forces.
SCG is partnering with INL to provide comprehensive travel and logistics support and build collaborative working relationships with security sector personnel in Haiti to advance successful criminal justice sector capacity building. Working directly with the Haitian National Police (HNP), its specialized law enforcement units, and other criminal justice sector personnel, SCG supports the design and delivery of seminars, meetings, and workshops, provides travel and logistics support for participants, secures event accommodations and facilities, and conducts evaluations of programmatic outcomes and impact. Through this support, SCG is empowering the government of Haiti to deliver civilian security appropriately, effectively, accountably, and in accordance with the rule of law.
Strategic Capacity Group (SCG) is a nonprofit dedicated to enhancing the ability of the United States and its partners to build strategic security sector capacity both at home and abroad. SCG assists donor and recipient governments to assess institutional capacity, identify gaps, develop and implement solutions, improve sustainability, and impact of reform.
SCG’s Security Sector Reform Program aims to build human and institutional capacity for effective and accountable security sector forces and institutions. SCG’s work is conducted through:
