Representatives of the U.S. Embassy’s Regional Security Office as well as officials from the Department of Homeland Security participated in an airport security measures training workshop held at Montevideo's Carrasco Airport on September 28, 2005. Airport personnel and members of the various Uruguayan government agencies tasked with keeping the traveling public safe were in attendance, including representatives of the various airlines as well as the concessions that operate at the airport.

The training was a cooperative effort aimed at recognizing and responding to potential threats early. This is part of an ongoing effort at exchanging ideas and developing coordination to protect all citizens and visitors to Uruguay from the dangers posed by terrorism.
