HAPCOA Chapter members in the news in Panama.

December 21, 2014

Attending the HAPCOA 41st Annual National Training Symposium were two ranking members of the Panamanian National Police Command Staff.  The attendees were Commissioner Javier Castillo, Deputy Director and Commissioner Elsa Garzon, Director of Planning and Projects, both of Panamanian National Police Force, and both supporting members of the HAPCOA US Embassy Panama Chapter.

Thanks to US Marshal Robert Almonte the visiting officials were provided with a tour of the US Marshal holding facilities and a presentation on Federal Court Security.

Upon their return they shared the following story with their agency which appears on the Panamanian National Police web page.
