Officers from Mecklenburg and Union Counties traveled to Mexico in September 2016 for the first Latino Initiative program focused on law enforcement. The 24 officers from all ranks traveled with the goal of better understanding the Hispanic and Latino communities they serve in North Carolina. In addition to traveling in Mexico City to learn about the culture and history of Mexico, the group visited a correctional facility in San Miguel de Allende and a state surveillance and command center in Silao. The delegation also visited families in the community of San Nicolás del Carmen. Participants returned to the United States with a belief that cross-cultural understanding is key to effective community policing.
