EL PAcCTO is a pioneering programme because it acts on the three pillars that make up the criminal chain
• Police cooperation
• Cooperation between Justice Systems
• Prison systems
It works on five cross-cutting areas:
• Human rights
• Money laundering
And it is intrinsically linked to two projects: EL PAcCTO: Support to ÁMERIPOL and INTERPOL: Support to EL PAcCTO
The project requires that recipient countries play an active role. These appoint several cross-cutting and pillar Focal Points to channel the actions of EL PAcCTO in their countries. They also seek confluence with other projects in the region.
Increase the capacities of security forces for carrying out regional joint investigations and operations.
Increase the capacities of judicial and fiscal institutions in the regional and international fight against organised crime.
