UNODC, with expert inputs of the Paris Pact Initiative, continues to strengthen the analytical capacities of Uzbek law enforcement agencies to better respond to threats of cross-border organized crime, including illicit drug trafficking, and to ensure effective border control. In this effort, intelligence processing and analysis form a key component for effective and efficient law enforcement activities.
On 6-11 June 2022, a national training course on the processing and analysis of information by using special and open programmes was conducted for 19 law enforcement officers and analysts from the regional departments of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Uzbekistan. The training was developed and delivered by the Paris Pact Liaison Officer based in Uzbekistan jointly with the Central Asian Regional Information and Coordination Centre for Combating Illicit Trafficking of Narcotic Drugs, Psychotropic Substances and their Precursors (CARICC).
The training aimed at enhancing analytical capacity of law enforcement officers in compiling and processing information using analytical software tools through practical exercises and case studies. The challenges related to making dashboards and diagrams and working with billing data and the ArcGIS geoinformation system were also reviewed.
The training was organized for the UNODC regional project on “Enhancing Capacity of Border Crossing Points and Improving Regional Cross-Border Cooperation by Promoting Border Liaison Offices’ Concept and Development of Information and Communication Networks for Border Agencies”. The Paris Pact Initiative global programme contributes to capacity building activities falling under the Cross-Border Cooperation component of Sub-programme 1 (SP1) “Countering transnational organized crime, illicit drug trafficking and preventing terrorism” of the UNODC Programme for Central Asia for 2022-2025. In 2021, the Paris Pact Liaison Officer delivered three training courses and trained over 30 border guards of Kazakhstan.
This activity is in line with priority recommendations adopted by Paris Pact partners under its thematic Pillar I on Cross-border Cooperation.
