The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office learned a little bit about what law enforcement is like on the other side of the world last month.
On June 22, Sheriff Don Smith met with Masafumi Kondo, the Superintendent of the National Police Agency of Japan, giving Kondo a tour of the facility and showing him some of his office’s equipment.
“I am extremely honored and proud of the fact that Superintendent Kondo chose the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office to visit,” Smith said in a press releasesent out Wednesday. “Through his visit, we have developed a working international relationship that reaches across the sea.”
The NPA is the central body for Japan’s police system, with more than 250,000 police officers.
