Sincerus is born of a proud lineage. We carry the legacy of expeditionary mission support and advisory architecture that began nearly 30 years ago by providing mentoring and training of military, police, and other government personnel in more than 40 countries –most of which was conducted in remote, challenging locations and even combat zones. We are true believers in the U.S. national security strategy that advocates for professional, ethical, and competent foreign militaries, police forces, and government agencies – and ultimately advances U.S. foreign policy goals.
Our first incursion into this work occurred in 1992 when the U.S. Department of State (DOS) made its mission to strengthen the former elements of the Soviet Union under the “Support to the Newly Independent States (NIS)”. We coordinated and supervised collection, inspection, shipment, and tracking of relief supplies to the NIS as well as building former military security forces into civilian-led police forces. Our support continued for more than 20 years with the award of the International Criminal Investigative Assistance Program (ICITAP), enabling us to expand into nearly 30 countries and aiding foreign governments to develop professional and transparent law enforcement institutions that protect human rights, combat corruption, and reduce the threat of transnational crime and terrorism.
In parallel, we expanded our strategic level advisory programs to include the African Crisis Response Initiative (ACRI), and its successor contracts Africa Contingency Operations Training and Assistance (ACOTA) and today the Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI). We support the Department of State by bringing institutional knowledge, best practices, and lessons learned from successfully delivering these capacity-building programs for over 15 years.
Beyond classroom training, our advisors and mentors are embedded into operational units while offering applied training techniques, re-enforcing lessons learned, and assessing student abilities in theatre. We continue the legacy of support today through GPOI, the Africa Peacekeeping Program (AFRICAP) IDIQ, and the Global Advisory Support Services IDIQ in support of the DOS Global Defense Reform Program (GDRP).
Security sector and international development assistance work hand in hand. Sincerus offers a coordinated approach to both, knowing that strong security assistance enhances the success of development activities. We provide our field-based personnel with the necessary administrative and logistical support to successfully execute their institutional capacity-building efforts.
We are proud of the work conducted throughout these past three decades and the heritage we are privileged to uphold.
