The U.S. Embassy’s International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs Section (INL) supports the Government of Peru’s efforts to carry out a comprehensive counternarcotics strategy that includes eradication of illicit coca, interdiction of narcotics, control of precursor chemicals, combating organized crime, investigation and prosecution of money laundering and financial crimes, and the administration of justice.  To support the development of institutional capacity, INL provides training and technical assistance to Peruvian law enforcement agencies such as the Peruvian National Police (PNP), customs and tax agency (SUNAT), as well as justice sector institutions such as the Public Ministry and the Judiciary.

INL programs also support the Peruvian government’s policy to expand its presence in coca growing and drug producing areas east of the Andes through eradication and alternative development, in collaboration with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
