In September, over 30 law enforcement officers from Asia, Africa and the United States joined together in Bangkok to combat transnational wildlife crime in a first-of-its-kind meeting and training course. Following up from progress made at a previous meeting in Nanning, China, the ASEAN-WEN Special Investigations Group 17-21 September 2012 convened at Bangkok’s International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA). The group included law enforcement officers from China-WEN, ASEAN-WEN, SA-WEN, LATF, Gabon, Cameroon and USA. The meeting was held jointly with an ARREST DETECT-Managers training course for wildlife crime investigators. The course introduced participants to new information, technology and skills to facilitate cross-border investigations to dismantle transnational criminal organizations responsible for the ongoing slaughter of elephants, rhinos, tigers and other endangered species.
