BENS led a delegation to Coronado, California to meet with US Navy Special Warfare Command. Our group toured SEALs and Special Warfare Combat Crewmen (SWCC) training facilities, met with leadership and personnel, and boarded/toured the USS Abraham Lincoln.

BENS hosted a roundtable discussion around countering human trafficking for a group of international law enforcement officers and policy makers working with the US State Department’s International Visitors Leadership Program (IVLP). Countries represented included Colombia, Mexico, Panama, Argentina, and many others from the SOUTHCOM area of responsibility. BENS assembled a panel of experts, including Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and Project Dynamo (run by BENS SE Member Bryan Stern). Representing the private sector on the panel were BENS Member representatives Stephanie Yanta (NEC/NSS) and Buddy Jericho (Indago Technologies).
