Instructor: The instructor for this class is Robert Almonte.  Mr. Almonte, a retired El Paso Police detective and a former U.S. Marshal, is considered one of the leading experts in the United States regarding Mexican Cartels and Gangs.

In addition to the Mexican Cartels, he will also be covering Patron Saints of the Mexican Underworld, Narcocorridos (Music of the Cartels),as well as Hotel/Motel and Stash House Investigations.

Course: Mexican Drug Trafficking Organizations are impacting communities in nearly every city in the United States.  This problem can no longer be viewed as a “Border Issue.” The majority of the drugs distributed and consumed in the U.S. originate in Mexico.  The Cartel leaders have strategically formed relationships with American Street gangs to flood the streets with illicit drugs.

In an effort to aggressively target drug trafficking organizations, local law enforcement officers need to gain a better understanding of the true structure and operational components of the Cartels and how the Mexican Drug War impacts local cities in the U.S. on a daily basis.

This training course will teach local law enforcement officers how to identify, target, infiltrate, and prosecute Mexican Drug Trafficking Organizations operating in their cities. All police officers, regardless of assignment, will benefit from this training.  Gaining a true understanding of the “Drug Trafficking Pyramid” will lead to more arrests as well as larger seizures of drugs, currency, and assets.
