Secretary of State Award/International
Yesterday NMCD became the second agency in the country to receive the service excellence award from the State Department and Secretary of State John Kerry.
"This award praises NMCD for the work of our training academy to mentor and train fellow correctional officers over the border in Mexico and beyond,” Secretary Gregg Marcantel said.“There may be nothing more like giving than coming together and walking along side our neighbors with like hearts.Our work with the State Department to assist our neighbors to the south is not only the right thing to do but when we consider the transnational impact of crime on either side of the border, in our support of the work, particularly in the Republic of Mexico, we are really helping ourselves.”
Our partnership with the United States Department of State to train International Correctional instructors has continued to be a huge success. In Fiscal Year 2015 there will be over 140 international corrections professionals trained by the NMCA staff.
