ASP JOHNATHAN PUTRA LAUM, the ASP for Plans and Programmes of the ASEANAPOL Secretariat attended the Counter-Transnational Organized Crime (C-TOC) Course for Africa-Asia in Lusaka, Zambia from the 15th to the 25th of June 2017. The course, supported by the Freeland Foundation and USAID Wildlife Asia, were participated by wildlife officers, police, customs and prosecutors from Zambia, Kenya, Malawi, Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam who involved in trans-national and trans-continental wildlife investigations. 
The C-TOC Course consists of eight (8) days of instruction, interactive hands-on application and training-the-trainer modules. C-TOC provides a modularised, hands-on training package which draws from real cases to build capacity and robust networks to stop organised crime in its tracks. Collating, providing and sharing updated information with law enforcement officers, investigators and prosecutors from selected countries in Africa and Asia, the course had effectively empower participated officers in intelligence-led (pro-active) targeting of the illegal trade and trafficking of wildlife and wildlife products. The objectives are to enable increased seizures with follow-on actions including controlled deliveries, investigations, arrests and prosecutions ultimately to dismantle the criminal networks.
The course was successfully held with active involvement from the participants. It is indeed the best platform to bring together all the law enforcement officers from different countries and thus strengthen the network to combat trans-national organised crime. Adding to that, participating officers were exposed to the norm, procedures and regulations of other participating countries which may, will ease in future collaborations and co-operations.
