OSCE, EU and UNDP train Tajik law enforcement agencies on chemical substances and precursors

Bishkek (AKIpress) - fight-against-drugs Twenty-six officers from Tajik law enforcement agencies completed a training course on chemical substances and precursors in Dushanbe. The course was organized jointly by the EU-UNDP Border Management Program in Central Asia (BOMCA) and Border Management Program of the OSCE Office in Tajikistan.

The event is part of a series of training courses aimed at developing the capacity of Tajik border security agencies to better cope with modern threats and challenges, especially in the field of identification of narcotics and precursors.

The three-day training course was conducted by experts on chemical substances from the Latvian Customs Service for a selected group of officers of Tajik national agencies. Ten representatives of the Tajik Drug Control Agency, ten representatives of the Tajik Customs Service and six representatives from the Tajik Border Troops were trained.

The course sought to introduce contemporary methodology and best practices in the control of precursors, identification of potential illegal smuggling of various chemical substances, efficient collection and information-sharing between national agencies, and cooperation with the private sector.

Sukhrob Kakharov, EU-UNDP BOMCA Country Manager in Tajikistan encouraged the participants to best use the newly-gained knowledge in order to maximize the results in the fight against the illegal drug trade and precursor control.
