Latin America / Trafficking in Human Beings
Since the beginning of 2018, PAcCTO has organized national and multi-country actions to strengthen the fight against human trafficking and smuggling. In this sense, to consolidate the actions carried out and strengthen coordination and information exchange between countries, a network of police specialized in human trafficking was formally created in 2021: the LYNX Network coordinated by the Federal Police of Brazil.
In addition, the PAcCTO also collaborates on this issue with the AIAMP through the network specialized in trafficking crimes.
This workshop in Mexico City will bring together police officers and prosecutors representing the institutions of the countries with which PAcCTO collaborates with these general objectives
- Strengthening of law enforcement investigative units and harmonization of procedures and techniques for the investigation of trafficking in persons and harmonization of procedures and techniques of police and judicial treatment among Latin American countries
- Support for the development of a mechanism for coordination and information exchange between Latin American law enforcement between Latin American law enforcement agencies
