Welcome to ILEA Gaborone

The International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA), Gaborone is located 45 kilometers south of Gaborone, Botswana.  The ILEA grounds and facilities are adjacent to the Botswana Police College complex.  The ILEA is a  U.S. funded program with in-kind contributions via the Government of Botswana partnership.

On July 24, 2000 in view of their long standing and close cooperation in law enforcement and their mutual interest in combating transnational crime, the United States and Botswana governments entered into an agreement for establishing an international law enforcement academy that would provide training for middle managers from eligible countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Through strengthened international cooperation against crime, the ILEAs' mission is to buttress democratic governance through the rule of law; enhance the functioning of free markets through improved legislation and law enforcement; and increase social, political, and economic stability by combating narcotics trafficking and crime.
