The United States Embassy in Podgorica, through its Export Control and Related Border Security (EXBS) Program, has organized a Radiation Detection and Response Course held in Police Academy in Danilovgrad from April 14 to 17. Three EXBS instructors, two experts in the field of nuclear physics and one law enforcement and interdiction expert, provided training to 18 participants from Montenegrin Border Police and Customs. 

At the closing ceremony, U.S. Ambassador, Sue K. Brown, gave remarks and awarded certificates to participants. Ambassador Brown thanked the participants for their cooperation and contributions to achieving effective border controls, an essential part of preventing the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.  The program is part of a broader effort to provide assistance to Montenegrin border authorities.  The United States, through the EXBS program, has provided over $3.5 million in training and equipment to help Montenegro strengthen its border security, export controls and non-proliferation efforts.
