Abstract: The police representatives discussed the current situation and trends in illicit drug traffic in Africa and presented statistics on significant seizures of drugs. They reviewed measures taken at the national and international levels to implement the recommendations adopted at their previous meeting. Working groups met to consider several topics: methods of concealment used in Africa and the modus operandi of illicit traffickers, illicit traffic in heroin, financial investigation and the organization of national and international law enforcement efforts, illicit traffic by sea, and the international exchange of law enforcement intelligence. This report describes the development of a regional drug law enforcement training strategy, and it includes reports by the U.N. International Drug Control Program and intergovernmental organizations on drug control activities in Africa.
