US gives Honduras slice of $200 million for law enforcement in Central America

Monday, February 14, 2011

The United States pledged Honduras an additional $1.75 million for Central America Regional Security Initiative (CARSI) programs.

The funding supports efforts by Honduran law enforcement to improve border and port security, prison management, and community policing programs focused on reducing gang-related violence. The money is part of the $200 million that the US is paying to Central American countries for the fight against drug trafficking.
