The overarching goals of this project are to deter drug trafficking and related transnational crime through the Eastern Caribbean and reduce the associated threats to citizen security in the Caribbean and the United States. In order to advance these goals, INL Bridgetown seeks to provide training and technical assistance to empower the RSS and its member countries to investigate and prosecute illicit maritime trafficking in the Eastern Caribbean.

Per discussions with RSS leadership, this project will help the RSS develop and implement a Maritime Law Enforcement Concept of Operations (MLE CONOPS) planning document as well as standard operating policies and procedures for maritime law enforcement.
  • This objective will support RSS efforts to stand up and sustain an Eastern Caribbean transnational organized crime task force
