AIRCOP aims to build drug interdiction capacities at selected international airports in West Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean by establishing Joint Airport Interdiction Task Forces (JAITFs). The JAITFs are connected to international law enforcement databases and communication networks (INTERPOL’s I-24/7 and WCO’s CENcomm) to encourage real-time transmission of information aimed at intercepting illicit shipments. The project also seeks to promote intelligence and information sharing between services at national and international level, as well as promote an intelligence-led approach to countering drug trafficking.

The project is implemented by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in partnership with the World Customs Organisation and INTERPOL.
