Duties and Responsibilities

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is a global leader in the fight against illicit drugs and international crime. Since 2016, UNODC and the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) have joined efforts to implement a project called CRIMJUST which aims to “Strengthen criminal investigation and criminal justice cooperation along drug trafficking routes”.
The CRIMJUST project supports a selected group of countries in Latin America and Caribbean as well as Africa in enhancing their capacity to effectively counter Organised Crime along drug trafficking routes, by focusing on four areas: a) strengthening the capacities of criminal justice institutions (law enforcement and the judiciary) to collect evidence to detect, investigate, prosecute and adjudicate organized crime/drug trafficking cases; b) fostering interregional cooperation between criminal justice institutions (law enforcement and the judiciary) for effective action in interregional organized crime/drug trafficking cases by promoting good practices, information exchange, networking and South-South cooperation; c) enhancing institutional integrity and accountability of criminal justice institutions (law enforcement and the judiciary) with the active involvement of civil society organizations; and d) producing of global and regional strategic and action-oriented knowledge, and capacity building on drug research and monitoring, to support evidence-based policy making and practitioners in the field to reduce the drug trafficking threat.
In September 2021, the United States Bureau of International Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) approved a separate project for CRIMJUST to provide specialized support for Benin and Togo, particularly focused on enhancing the capacity of two dedicated organized crime/drug trafficking units in both countries. In December 2021, a training needs assessment of both of these units was completed, which identified the high need for the development of capacity on criminal intelligence analysis.

Against this background, the criminal intelligence trainer is to develop and deliver a 10-day training programme on the fundamentals of criminal intelligence analysis for analysts from Benin and Togo.
