As one of the most visible apparatuses of state power, effective and accountable law enforcement and criminal justice services are an essential to stability. Weak rule of law facilitates corruption and promotes a lack of confidence in institutions, opening the door for foreign malign influence. INL’s work with partner nations is designed to help reduce crime, promote public safety, and ensure that citizens of those countries have access to a functioning and fair justice system. This requires engaging across the entire spectrum of criminal justice, including with law enforcement, judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and correctional institutions, to build a fair, transparent, and accountable criminal justice system. A public that has confidence in law enforcement, its prisons, and courts strengthens the stability and resiliency of a nation, which benefits the security of Americans.
