Proud of its notable achievement against rhino poaching over the recent months, Nepal Police has planned to highlight its feat against wildlife crimes at the Interpol conference in Lyon, France starting on April 2.
“We will highlight the best practices we have been carrying out against poaching of rhinos, tigers and elephants as that could be the best example for other member countries of Interpol,” Nepal Police Spokesperson SSP Ganesh KC said. Since last February 16, not a single incident of rhino poaching has been reported in any of the protected areas.
A team of Nepal Police lead by Inspector General of Nepal Police Upendra Kanta Aryal, who is also chief of Interpol Nepal, on Monday left to participate in the 10th Annual Head of National Central Bureau (NCB) Conference.
According to SSP KC, the conference is being organized with the theme "100 Years of International Police Cooperation: Celebrating the Role of NCBS".
The participating Interpol members will jointly discuss on common issues and challenges related to transnational crimes including terrorism, organized crimes, drug and weapons trafficking, trafficking in human, cyber crimes, ecological crimes and counterfeit currencies, according to him.
The conference will also focus on new forms and trends of crimes being carried out across the world, modus operandi in tackling the challenges ahead and review the loopholes observed during the past years.
The conference also aims to help improve tools and techniques in facilitating cross-border police co-operation, supports and assistance to all related organizations, authorities and services whose mission is to prevent or combat international crime.
