TAGS: ASEC PREL IS JO
SUBJECT: PROPOSAL FOR INL-FUNDED JOINT ISRAELI-JORDANIAN
TRAINING COURSE


1. (U) Embassy Amman, with the support of Embassy Tel Aviv,
requests assistance from DOS/INL to fund a mid-level Major
Case Management (Law Enforcement) Course to be held in Amman,
Jordan. In 1999, this course was offered as part of a joint
training program between the Israelis and Jordanians, and was
held in Israel. There is current interest in running this
joint training course again, this time in Amman, Jordan. It
is anticipated that the course will promote law enforcement
cooperation, and enhance the efforts for peace in the region.

2. (U) The total number of students will be 20 Israeli
officers and 20 Jordanian officers. The total number of
instructors will be four or five. The course lasts five
days, and hotel accommodations for 40 students will be for
six days; seven days lodging will be necessary for the
instructors. Airfare will be necessary for the instructors.
Bus transportation will be available for arriving students
from Israel. Course materials are minimal, and A/V equipment
and conference room and can provided by the Jordanian Police
Academy. Money can also be funded for special events, such
as a graduation dinner, and coffee/pastry service during the
course.

3. (U) It is likely this course will enable
person-to-person exchanges between Israeli and Jordanian
personnel, and the networking that will follow from these
meetings will pay dividends that far exceed the expense of
sending FBI training personnel to this area. Both Legatt
Amman and Legatt Tel Aviv are in agreement concerning the
value of this joint training initiative.
