INTERPOL environmental working group meetings enhance collaboration
4 December 2014
Designing a joint international strategy to tackle environmental crime is the focus of a series of Environmental Crime Working Group Meetings being held at the INTERPOL General Secretariat headquarters in Lyon.
The 25th Wildlife Crime Working Group Meeting, the 19th Pollution Crime Working Group Meeting and the 3rd Fisheries Crime Working Group Meeting were held from 25-27 November, along with parallel meetings of INTERPOL’s Green Customs Initiative and Environmental Compliance and Enforcement Committee (ECEC) Advisory Board.
Some 200 members of senior law enforcement officials from 60 INTERPOL member countries from around the world and representatives from international organizations have set out strategies to best deal with environmental crime in all its forms, and ensure that governments and law enforcement officials recognize and raise awareness of the dangers created by this type of crime.
