On Thursday, February 1, Fernando Segovia, Director-General of Brazil’s Federal Police, will be in Washington, D.C. to discuss collaborative efforts to investigate and deter transnational criminal organizations. During his visit, the Director-General will meet with counterparts in several law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The U.S. Mission to Brazil enjoys robust collaboration with Brazilian law enforcement. Brazilian federal and state law enforcement routinely work in partnership with the nine U.S. law enforcement agencies in country on a wide range of issues and training opportunities. This visit by Director-General Segovia to Washington, D.C. demonstrates the strength of our relationship as we work together to combat the transnational crime threat that affects all of us.
