You are here: Home / What We Do / TP

Following a request from the Eastern Africa Police Chiefs Cooperation Organisation (EAPCCO), UNODC has initiated assistance to the EAPCCO Regional Counter-Terrorism Centre of Excellence. UNODC is working in partnership with the Centre to provide technical and capacity building assistance and operational guidance in support of the full operationalization and functionalization of the Counter-Terrorism Centre of Excellence so that it can serve a key function in enhancing regional knowledge, capacity and operations to prevent and counter violent extremism and terrorism in Eastern Africa.

UNODC will be supporting the Centre in their coordination and delivery of operational guidance and capacity building activities to law enforcement practitioners in EAPCCO Member States, in order to enhance skills of individual criminal justice practitioners in detecting, preventing and investigating terrorism activities, to increase success and effectiveness in cross-border operations, to enhance police legitimacy across the region, and to produce quality relevant research and intelligence products to counter terrorism.
