Costa Rican prison officials tour Nebraska facilities

Nebraska penal officials have hosted a delegation from Costa Rica that was to tour 10 of the state’s prisons and receive briefings on the central administration and industries in the correctional facilities.

The visit is the first in a planned series to offer cooperation for the purpose of exchanging best practices on prisons and corrections management and systems, said the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs.

In the future, other key foreign officials will be selected by the bureau for corrections programs around the world. The purpose of these activities is to enhance the capacity of foreign governments to handle international criminal activities and incarceration, the bureau said.
