WASHINGTON - March 11, 2014 - PRLog -- Washington, D.C.—On February 10, 2014, the International Association of Airport and Seaport Police (InterPort Police) is happy to announce that David Ratkovich, LPD, Executive Director for ETS Intelligence from Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois was bestowed the title of Honorary Chief of Police for InterPort Police.

The Secretary General Jay Grant, after consulting with the executives, selected Mr. Ratkovich for the work and support to the Secretary General’s Office. Mr. Ratkovich was appointed in 2012, to be part of the advisory team for Joel Vargas, Assistant Director for Law Enforcement Operations and Head of Intelligence.

InterPort Police was founded in 1969 by public safety agencies from the United States, Canada and the Netherlands. It was founded to assist its agencies that are members deal with global threats such as terrorism and transnational crime, all of them crimes that require cooperation and collaboration with a global network of public safety and security resources. InterPort Police was built with that foundation in place.

Today, the mission has become more critical than ever as borders become challenged not only by globalization but by criminals that continue to place countries’ National Security interests at risk on a daily basis.

The mission has also evolved into an intelligence sharing platform where organizations involved in airports, seaports, borders, oil pipes, airline industry, the cruise industry, supply chain, rail, maritime transportation, and other forms of public transportation require reliable intelligence to stay one step ahead of the criminal or the terrorist.

The mission has also evolved into activities with policy and agency leaders, national governments, intergovernmental organization and specialized associations. Secretary General Jay Grant is an expert in policy and spent most of his professional career in Capitol Hill.

In addition, our international awards and decoration programs recognizes law enforcement and public safety officers and officials who have distinguished themselves in fighting terrorism and serious transnational crime.

“It is an honor to have Mr. Ratkovich as my personal adviser from the private sector, with his extensive knowledge in investigations and matters of security. In the last year, he has been a valuable asset to our organization, and it is only proper that we call him David Ratkovich, Chief of Police,” stated Joel Vargas, Assistant Director for Law Enforcement Operations and Head of Intelligence.

Mr. Ratkovich will be handed his certificate in the coming days.
