Building a New Police in Honduras: Challenges and Opportunities Faced by the Police Purge and Reform Commission

After nearly 15 months of work and 5,000 police suspended or removed from the force, the Special Commission to Purge and Reform the Honduran Police is nearing the end of its mandate.  Along the way, the Commission has faced serious challenges and made significant progress in ridding the force of corrupt leaders and officers.  Legislative reforms to reorganize and strengthen the police are in their infancy.

We hosted a discussion with members of the Honduran Police Purge and Reform Commission and an independent journalist to learn more about the extent and impact of their work.

Note: This event was held in Spanish.

The Wilson Center’s prestigious Latin America Program provides non-partisan expertise to a broad community of decision makers in the United States and Latin America on critical policy issues facing the Hemisphere. The Program provides insightful and actionable research for policymakers, private sector leaders, journalists, and public intellectuals in the United States and Latin America. To bridge the gap between scholarship and policy action, it fosters new inquiry, sponsors high-level public and private meetings among multiple stakeholders, and explores policy options to improve outcomes for citizens throughout the Americas. Drawing on the Wilson Center’s strength as the nation’s key non-partisan policy forum, the Program serves as a trusted source of analysis and a vital point of contact between the worlds of scholarship and action.  Read more
