The project to fight organised crime in the Caribbean (MCBS-UE) has trained personnel from the Dominican Republic and Haiti in prospective intelligence and information analysis
In an increasingly globalised world, border control is essential to curb the activity of the criminal organisations that traffic in human beings, drugs and weapons, among other things. Through the MCBS-EU cooperation project in the Caribbean, which is funded by the European Union and managed by FIIAPP, it works together with Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica to improve regional security and fight against human trafficking by improving information exchange and border control.
Within the framework of this project, training and technical assistance has been carried out on “Prospective Intelligence: Strategic Analysis and Information Processing”. This activity has been undertaken together with institutions from the Dominican Republic and Haiti. The training seeks to equip public employees from the selected entities with practical, useful and effective tools that will allow them not only to fight in a more efficient way against these crimes but also to develop new investigative skills adapted to current realities.
The activity focused not only on training but also on establishing contacts between these two countries to strengthen border and internal security and fight transnational and organised crime.
Collaboration between these countries is essential to combatting transnational organised crime. The need to exchange police information, establish quick and effective contacts between the different countries that allow investigations to be addressed from a global perspective and not merely territorial and have well-trained and skilled officials are some of the essential requirements to prevent and combat transnational organised crime.
The advance of new technologies and the appearance of new forms of organised crime also require the modernisation of institutions and the provision of laws and procedures that allow the intensive use of new technologies in the investigation of organised crime.
