HPT and the US-Canadian Maritime Collaborative Effort

The US Coast Guard and Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have developed an unprecedented bi-national partnership, extending reciprocal law enforcement authorities to officers of both organizations. With sovereignty concerns at stake, and variance between both agencies’ cultures (e.g., demographics, training styles, legal parameters), training and operational successes hinge on sound, agreed-upon HPT standards for performance. This presentation demonstrates how collaborative objective-building between entities (businesses, government agencies, or even nations) can force-multiply both programs’ desired results.
