ABOUT THE POLICE PROFESSIONALIZATION EXCHANGE PROGRAM
The Police Professionalization Exchange Program (PPEP) is a Global Ties U.S. designed exchange program intended to support the U.S. government's efforts in Mexico to encourage the development of a democratic and transparent public security sector by professionalizing police personnel and institutions. PEPP is an integrated, innovated exchange program that will help build U.S.-Mexican law enforcement relations, while also providing professional development, capacity-building, and leadership development activities for nearly 300 Mexican senior law enforcement leaders annually. The program includes a series of online modules; U.S.-based law enforcement training academies; professional study tours; law enforcement summits; and Mexico-based training institutes. Mexican law enforcement officials and staff will participate in one or more of these exchange activities as part of PPEP, allowing them to interact, share, and learn alongside their U.S. counterparts, ultimately increasing their capacity to be effective leaders within the Mexican law enforcement community.
PPEP is funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL), through a Cooperative Agreement with Global Ties U.S.
The Program Associate, Police Professionalization Exchange Program (PPEP) is primarily responsible for providing administrative, logical, and programmatic support for the PPEP initiative and related activities. The position will provide this support primarily in two areas – the administration of short-term international exchange projects that connect individuals from different countries around common interests; and the execution and delivery of high impact training, capacity-building, and networking events as part of the Mexico PPEP initiative. In doing so, the Program Associate will be an integral part of the initiative, working closely with the team responsible for developing and executing an array of international exchange related activities in support of the U.S. government's efforts. The position requires a professional with a combination of interpersonal, customer service, administrative, and programmatic skills, as well as a person that is highly energetic, detail oriented, and with the ability to handle multiple projects, priorities, and personalities at a time. It also requires the ability to use databases and spreadsheets for tracking information. The Program Associate may also assist with overseeing the daily activities of the program intern.
