5th Annual Transborder International Police Training Conference

4 03 2011

In November 2007, a group of 37 officials from Texas and Mexico met at Rancho Río Grande in Coahuila and founded Policía Internacional Transfronteriza / Transborder International Police (PIT/TIP).  In attendance were members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Houston Police Department, United States Marshal Service, Texas Attorney General’s Office, Texas Department of Public Safety, Brownsville Police Department, Arizona Highway Patrol and the National Insurance Crime Bureau.  Representing Mexico were officials from the Coahuila State Police, Tamaulipas State Police, Agencia Federal de Investigaciones, Policía Federal Preventiva, and various other state and local law enforcement agencies. 

For the last five years these law enforcement officers have been working cooperatively to expedite the investigation of hundreds of trans-border crimes.   Just recently, a joint operation that began as an auto theft investigation in Houston, Texas resulted in the arrest of 11 suspects in Mexico City and the confiscation of weapons, 499 rounds of ammunition and 16 stolen vehicles.

The Policía Internacional Transfronteriza / Transborder International Police (PIT/TIP) is proud to invite you to the 5th Annual Training Conference. All eligible attendees will be entitled to receive 40 TCLEOSE credit hours and the opportunity to network with Federal, State and Local Law Enforcement Officers from North and Central America.

Theme: Influencing Policy From The Ground Up

Each investigative agency has its unique transborder challenges. As investigators or prosecutors, we find ourselves thinking “my unit could do a more effective job if only ____________.” This conference will serve as as a platform to fill in that blank and to have those wishes be heard by those who actually formulate policies.

Additionally, thanks to the feedback we received in our previous conference, organizers are scheduling more workshops into this year’s agenda. Topics will include:

human trafficking,

money laundering,



car bombs,

auto theft, and much more.

The full agenda will be available online as soon as all presenters are confirmed.


Attendees must be law enforcement officers and security personnel.
