Ambassador Reinke Presents U.S. Donation to National Police Directorate  

Ambassador Judy Reinke presented an equipment donation on October 8, 2020 to the Montenegrin Police Directorate and its Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Prevention of Terrorism Financing Department.

The U.S. Embassy, through its International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program (ICITAP), donated hardware and software required to establish a secure data network within the AML Department, enabling it to work with financial data and investigate cases of money laundering. The donated equipment, valued at $270,000 USD, was presented in conjunction with the European Union and the Council of Europe, which are donating advanced analytical software to the Department.

Since 2010, the U.S. Embassy has allocated over $17 million dollars for programs to help increase institutional capacity to tackle corruption and strengthen capabilities to fight transnational organized crime.
