This Memorandum of Understanding is for the purpose of establishing a mutual framework governing the respective responsibilities of the U.S. Department of State and Miami-Dade County for cooperation related to training, advising, and mentoring international law enforcement personnel and/or to provide assistance for anti-crime efforts overseas. The Memorandum of Understanding is effective upon execution and will continue through January 31, 2016. There are no costs associated with this Memorandum of Understanding.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
The purpose of the Memorandum of Understanding is to establish a mutual framework governing the respective responsibilities of the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs of the U.S. Department of State and Miami-Dade County for cooperation related to training, advising, and mentoring international law enforcement personnel and/or to provide assistance for anti-crime efforts overseas. The purpose of these activities is to provide assistance to foreign governments relative to international criminal activities. The services of the Miami-Dade Police Department will be paid by the federal partner, the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs of the U.S. Department of State.

Miami-Dade County has been selected by the U.S. Department of State to provide these services. This will benefit Miami-Dade County and the Miami-Dade Police Department by developing and fostering a partnership with a key federal agency and sharing information concerning anti-crime efforts, especially narcotics activity, and other related law enforcement matters.
