UNODC continues to enhance the analytical capacities of Uzbek law enforcement officers

UNODC continues to strengthen the analytical capacities of Uzbek law enforcement agencies to better gauge and 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 20-24 September, UNODC conducted a national training course on information processing and analysis using special software for 12 officers-analysts from the State Customs Committee, Border Troops of State Security Service and Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

The training aimed to enhance the analytical capacities of law enforcement officers in gathering, compiling and processing information using modern software tools through practical exercises and case studies. The challenges related to Deep Web, Darknet and distribution of drugs through the Internet were reviewed.

“Intelligence analysis and intelligence-led policing are vital components of the UNODC Programme in Central Asia. Intelligence is a fundamental element of law enforcement activities. The training will further promote regional cooperation among law enforcement agencies at the national and regional levels,” said Mr. Rasoul Rakhimov, UNODC National Programme Manager, Programme Office in Tajikistan, in his welcome remarks.

He encouraged the participants to actively use the capacities of the Central Asian Regional Information and Coordination Centre for Combating Illicit Trafficking of Narcotic Drugs, Psychotropic Substances and their Precursors (CARICC) which are being constantly expanded and developed.

Mr. Arstanbek Duyshoev, an expert from CARICC specializing in the use of special software, thanked UNODC for organizing the training and noted that the course would enhance the capacity of law enforcement analysts in counternarcotics activities and combating cross-border organized crime.

The training was delivered by CARICC and UNODC experts.

The training was organized under “Drug law enforcement systems for criminal intelligence collection, analysis and exchange and intelligence-led policing” component funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) and “Countering the trafficking of Afghan opiates via the northern route by enhancing the capacity of key border crossing points and through the establishment of Border Liaison Offices” component funded by the Government of Japan of Sub-programme 1 “Countering transnational organized crime, illicit drug trafficking and preventing terrorism” of the UNODC Programme for Central Asia.

These components form a partnership framework for impact-related action in Central Asia.
