The international team at CTI primarily consists of retired and serving law enforcement professionals who have broad experience in human rights development projects worldwide and are considered experts in their respective fields.

All CTI consultants have an extensive background in both practical and theoretically based policing concepts, international human rights and humanitarian law (It should be noted that military personnel performing internal security tasks generally fall under the definition of Law Enforcement Officers; Article #1, Commentaries a & b: United Nations Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Officials, adopted by General Assembly resolution 34/169 of 17 December 1979).

All CTI consultants have substantial previous experience working as certified trainers with national law enforcement agencies and also on behalf of recognized international bodies such as the United Nations (UN), European Union (EU), International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).
