During a meeting in Managua, Nicaragua, police forces from the Caribbean, Central America, Colombia and Mexico, adopted a “joint operation” to fight drug trafficking, organized crime and related offenses, according to police sources.
Directors and police chiefs from Central American countries, the Caribbean, Colombia and Mexico, are in session at a hotel in Managua on Aug. 23 and 24 “to adopt a joint strategy” against drugs, organized crime, youth gangs, auto theft, trafficking and border security, reported Nicaraguan Police spokesman Fernando Borge to AFP.
The plan will include implementing “simultaneously bi-national and transnational operational actions” for the persecution of these crimes, Borge added.
This strategy seeks to constantly combat transnational organized crime from Mexico to Colombia, including the Caribbean, according to Aminta Granera, Nicaraguan Police chief.
