Colombia, the destination where security training is outsourced

Often, it is more cost-efficient for the U.S. to outsource military and police training to Colombia. In co-operation with the U.S., Colombia provides capacity-building assistance in 16 countries inside and outside the region, including Africa.

Colombia also provides assistance in non-defense areas like justice reform, criminal investigations, processing intelligence, and deploying soldiers in jungle warfare.
