In an emblematic display of international cooperation, the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office (RCDAO) recently held a special forum that saw Australian Federal Police (AFP) Assistant Commissioner, Douglas Boudry, take center stage alongside District Attorney Tom Walsh.
The event was marked by the presence of not just the AFP but a plethora of representatives from various agencies. Notable attendees included figures from Homeland Security Investigations, the Rockland County Police Chiefs Association, the Office of Court Administration, and the New York State Police.
Throughout the forum, the RCDAO staff showcased various programs their office has rolled out, elucidating on collaborations with local, state, and federal partners. There was also a significant emphasis on the crime trends observed within Rockland County.
Such events underscore the importance of cross-border collaborations. DA Walsh stressed the value of these gatherings, stating, “By understanding best practices and procedures from different law enforcement agencies worldwide, we can refine our strategies and further strengthen security in Rockland County.”
The county looks forward to more of such productive engagements, enhancing the quality of its law enforcement mechanisms by learning from international peers.
