The Evanston Police Department was honored on Sept. 27 with delegates from the South Korean National Police Service. These delegates were part of an educational partnership with Northwestern University’s Center for Public Safety; they toured the Evanston Police Department to get a firsthand look at day-to-day operations there.

The South Korean National Police delegates included Senior Superintendent General Sang-Yong Park, president of the South Korean Police Training Institute; Senior Superintendent Je-Hoon Lee, director of the Academic Affairs Division; and Senior Inspector Ok-Ryong Jang, the International Program Officer.
