Support for Increased International Cooperation in Criminal Matters

The project, to be implemented by UNODC's Global Firearms Programme in partnership with INTERPOL, aims to provide support to the Western Balkans jurisdictions to collect and analyze criminal justice data and facilitate and strengthen the cooperation and information exchange between criminal justice practitioners, and support detection of illicit firearms trafficking. The assistance by both organizations will result in the Western Balkans jurisdictions achieve measurable results in the implementation of the Roadmap, including the connection of all police services to INTERPOL’s Illicit Arms Records, Tracing Management System (iARMS), information exchange with countries located along connected routes and understanding of the gaps in the detection of firearms in postal shipments.
