Illicit Trafficking and Smuggling
UNODC works with the Lao Government to strengthen its legal and technical capacities to prevent and stop the trafficking of people, drugs, precursors as well as organized crime. Capacity enhancement of law enforcement agencies, increasing border surveillance and the intelligence, ability to detect, investigate and prosecute illicit trafficking and related crimes such as corruption and money laundering are key priorities. Funds from asset seizures and asset recovery processes will enable the law enforcement efforts to be more effective. Approaches will be integrated and coordinated within the concept of safe borders, safe cities and safe communities.
