International police training -training offered by the police of one country to the police of other countries- has a long history. A recent development is training offered by international police academies, such as the International Police Academies (ILEAs) created by the US in Hungary, Thailand, and Botswana; the Middle European Police Academy (MEPA) jointly created by Austria and Hungary; or the attempts by the European Union to start a common police academy for police in members states. The paper will examine the original, organization, policies, and training offered by TADOC (Turkish International Academy against Drugs and Organized Crime), place its creation within the larger context of international policing assistance efforts, and speculate on the likely impacts of training offered on the performance of participating police forces.
