Submitted by: Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Committee

NDD.001.a09

 

WHEREAS, Felipe de Jesus Calderon Hinojosa assumed office as President of Mexico on December 1, 2006; and

WHEREAS, President Calderon has led intensive drug enforcement operations against Mexican drug cartels since assuming office, resulting in the capture of numerous drug traffickers, the record seizures of marijuana, cocaine, heroin and other drugs, and the destruction of clandestine methamphetamine laboratories and airstrips, drug camps and marijuana and opium poppy farms; and

WHEREAS, Mexican drug cartels have become increasingly desperate and violent as a result of increased disruption of their organizations by successful law enforcement efforts in the United States and Mexico, increasing the risk of harm to Mexican law enforcement and government personnel and resulting in the death of more than 10,600 people since President Calderon took office, including at least 450 Mexican police officers and soldiers since January 2007; and

WHEREAS, President Calderon continues to provide strong leadership in a courageous effort to dismantle powerful Mexican drug trafficking organizations, in partnership with federal, state and local law enforcement authorities in the United States and throughout the world; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, that the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) duly assembled at its 116th Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado, commends President Calderon for his Comprehensive Strategy Against Drug Trafficking and strongly urges all governments and law enforcement agencies to continue support of his efforts to dismantle drug cartels and bring stability to Mexico's northern border region.
