This chapter sets out the significant interplay with and impact of exchanges with overseas policing paradigms, paying particular attention to the historic links between Northern Ireland and America and the close relationship with the Policing Board from the moment of its establishment, including both participation in annual visits to the White House by Board members and others involved in policing in Northern Ireland, and contacts with the US Consul General in Belfast. The chapter also notes the international conference in Belfast in February 2007 arranged by the Board addressing both progress made in Northern Ireland and developments in policing internationally, and the many visits to the Board by representatives from foreign countries as well as overseas fact-finding trips by Board members. The concluding section begins with an assessment by Mary Alice Clancy of the role played by the US Presidents’ special envoys to Northern Ireland, and ends with an analysis of the importance of the exchanges with American police and policy-makers in particular.
