UNODC Strengthens Intelligence Analytical Capacity of Central Asian Law Enforcement Agencies

Some 17 officers from analytical units of the law enforcement agencies of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan️, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan were trained to conduct the operative information analysis with the help of analytical criminal intelligence software " ArcGis "and" IBM i2 " at the training from 18 to 22 June conducted in Kyrgyzstan.

Knowledge of effective use of these programmes will support them in developing effective, timely management decisions in the fight against organized crime and drug trafficking.

"Since 2008 UNODC has donated "IBM i2" license keys to 18 law enforcement agencies in the Central Asian region", said Amelia Hannaford, Head of UNODC Programme Office in Tajikistan. "In this way, UNODC is strengthening bilateral and multilateral cooperation and creating direct links between the law enforcement analysts at the national and regional levels, as well as enhancing the networking".

The seminar participants had also improved their knowledge on challenges and threats associated with the use of «DeepWeb» and «DarkNet» for criminal purposes that analysts encounter in their daily work.

The program "ArgGis" allows you to visualize large amounts of statistical information on the drug situation with geo-referencing in the form of a digital map.

I2 software products allow analysts to quickly compare, analyze and visualize data from various sources, thus reducing time for search of information in the complex massive data. They also enable detecting, foreseeing, preventing and countering criminal, terroristic and fraudulent activities. This information provides detection and suppression of criminal and cyber threats.

The training was organized by the UNODC Regional Office for Central Asia in the frame of Sub-Programme-1 of the UNODC Programme for Central Asia 2015-2019, that is aimed at Countering transnational organized crime, illicit drug trafficking and preventing terrorism.
