AIRCOP in Latin America and Caribbean
|...||Despite the early stage of AIRCOP implementation in the region, various AIRCOP initiatives are currently underway. Jamaica has already signed a Memorandum of Understanding and committed to full AIRCOP implementation and activities are expected to begin at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston in early 2013. Colombia has also expressed strong interest in AIRCOP and the project team is working closely with Colombian counterparts to identify how national benefits can be maximized through the initiative.|
AIRCOP will continue to be rolled out at specific airports in Latin America and the Caribbean in the coming months. As Central America and the Caribbean continue to be exploited as a corridor for transnational organized crime and drug trafficking, UNODC and its project counterparts will continue to work closely with governments in the region in an effort to identify and meet their specific needs.
