    Costa Rica is looking at the border security model of Israel in order to secure the Costa Rican borders. This effort works in cooperation projects with China, confirmed Vice Minister of Security Celso Gamboa.

    Gamboa explained that Israel is willing to share its experience in border management and protection of key officials and Costa Rica “will determine the model” according to their own needs.

    “It is important that officials can soak in the experience but of course our models are not equal,” he said.

    Among the areas that the Israeli authorities will train officers are criminal control and border security.

    Gamboa stressed that Costa Rica has its own tradition and “doctrine police” and that these agreements, as well as others who have this country with Colombia and the United States, are only “inputs” to improve the work of security forces .

    Costa Rica reestablished a specialized border police in January 2011, after Nicaragua its territory in the Caribbean in October 2010; a case that is being currently under investigation by the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

    Since then, the government of Laura Chinchilla has strengthened border enforcement and increased the number of officers on patrol.

    In recent months several Costa Rican officials like Vice President Alfio Piva and Foreign Minister Enrique Castillo, traveled to Israel to define areas of cooperation in security but also in and other areas.
