Maritime and Border enforcement

It is a subject that covers much complexity including managing localized crime as well as international aspects such as refugee movements. Training focuses on building strong coordination between enforcers and border authorities.
Another persistent and growing crime in society today, narcotics is frequently linked to other criminal activities such as people exploitation and smuggling as well as the financing of terror. Coordination between specialist Government agencies, medical and welfare providers is essential.

Multi-agency cooperation, regional working groups and special themes such as women in law enforcement and prisons intelligence contribute to a wide variety of valuable learning experiences.
