New agreement tackles transnational, serious and organised crime in Pacific

Last week executive members of the AFP, New Zealand Police, Fiji Police Force and Tonga Police met at AIPM to sign a MoU to demonstrate their commitment to targeting the scourge of organised crime across the Pacific.

"Law enforcement agencies from four nations today launched a new taskforce to combat serious and organised crime operating in the Pacific region.

The Transnational, Serious and Organised Crime (TSOC) Pacific Taskforce will make it easier for member countries to jointly investigate and disrupt organised crime groups operating in the area, target groups using small craft to move illicit drugs through the region, share operational intelligence, and strengthen cooperation to conduct expanded and complex investigations."
