Members of the Port of San Diego Harbor Police dive team have recently returned from a training mission to Anilao Batangas, Philippines where they shared their expertise in underwater crime scene investigations with federal and local maritime law enforcement agencies. The training mission, from January 12-27, 2018, was made possible through a partnership established by Harbor Police in 2015 with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).

“We’re proud to have opportunities to train, advise and mentor international law enforcement and security personnel to assist in global anti-crime efforts,” said acting Harbor Police Chief Mark Stainbrook. “Additionally, the relationships and networks our officers develop on missions like this help improve security and deter crime here at home, too.”
