Monday, March 11, 2013 – A Walk in The Rocks and a Lesson in International Law Enforcement

This morning, the students learned about the history of The Rocks and the early years of the colony during a walking tour. The tour was amazing and even included a discussion of the founding of the first criminal court in Australia.

In the afternoon, we had the opportunity to visit the U.S. Consulate in Sydney. During our visit, we received briefings regarding international white collar criminal law enforcement and legal globalization from the Force Protection Detachment, the Regional Security Office, the FBI, the IRS Investigative Branch, and the U.S. Consul General. Each noted the significance of globalization on law enforcement and the international nature of today’s law enforcement environment.
