Jamaica hosts Regional Aircop Operations at the Norman Manley International Airport In Kingston, Jamaica

Kingston, 27th May 2022. From 23rd to 27th May 2022, officers from AIRCOP Joint Airport Interdiction Task Forces (JAITFs) from the Grantley Adams International Airport (Barbados), the Norman Manley International Airport (Kingston, Jamaica), the Sangster International Airport (Montego Bay, Jamaica) and the Piarco International Airport (Trinidad and Tobago), took part in joint operations aimed at exchanging best practices and strengthening operational collaboration across the AIRCOP network in the Caribbean. These JAITFs were also joined by an analyst from CARICOM IMPACS Joint Regional Communication Centre (JRCC) for the week of operations which targeted regional and international flights with a focus on passengers and air cargo.
These operations, hosted and led by the AIRCOP JAITF based in Kingston, Jamaica and supported by the national AIRCOP Steering Committee in Jamaica, brought together over 60 law enforcement personnel from AIRCOP JAITFs, IMPACS JRCC, Jamaica Constabulary Force, Jamaica Customs Agency and the Jamaica Civil Aviation Agency and demonstrated the inherent advantages in strong cooperation and coordination when tackling transnational organized crime at airports. 
Likewise on 25th May 2022, AIRCOP and the National AIRCOP Steering Committee hosted a joint meeting with International Partners to provide a platform for dialogue to further strengthen collaboration and cooperation with the international community.
The meeting amongst international partners was opened by Mrs. Norma Brown Martin, Senior Policy Director for Border Security at the Ministry of National Security, Jamaica; Mr. Andrew Wynter, Chief Executive Officer of the Passport Information and Citizenship Agency (PICA), Jamaica; Dr. Garry Conille, Resident Coordinator of the United Nations System in Jamaica; Mr. Fredrik Ekfeldt, Minister Counsellor/Deputy Head of Mission of the European Union Delegation to Jamaica; and H.E. Emina Tudakovic, High Commissioner of Canada in Jamaica. Participants also included representatives from the WCO, US CBP, CBSA and RCMP.
The Airport Communication Project (AIRCOP) is a multi-agency initiative implemented by UNODC in partnership with INTERPOL and the World Customs Organization (WCO).  It is designed to strengthen the capacities of law enforcement agencies at international airports to target and intercept high-risk passengers, cargo and mail, in the fight against illicit drugs and other illicit commodities (such as wildlife products or falsified medical products), terrorism-related threats (such as arms or potential foreign terrorist fighters), trafficking in persons and smuggling of migrants.
Based on the fundamental idea of information sharing and trust building, adaptable to the evolution of trafficking routes and the emergence of newly trafficked commodities, AIRCOP is continuously expanding across the globe as a key element of border management and security. In the English-speaking Caribbean, AIRCOP is currently implemented in 4 international airports in Barbados, Jamaica (2 airports) and Trinidad and Tobago.
The Implementation of AIRCOP in these international airports is funded by the European Union (in Barbados and Jamaica), through the Global Illicit Flows Programme and by the Government of Canada (in Trinidad and Tobago), through the Anti-Crime Capacity Building Programme (ACCBP).
