UNCT-UNODC-KG-Nurai2

13 officers of analytical divisions of the State Border Service and Ministry of Interior of the Kyrgyz Republic were trained how to use specialized analytical IBM i2 and i2 Analyst Notebook software at the 5-day training course, organized by UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) on 3-7 July 2017 in Osh city.

I2 software products allow analysts to quickly compare, analyze and visualize data from various sources, thus reducing time for search of information in the complex massive data. They also enable detecting, foreseeing, preventing and countering criminal, terroristic and fraudulent activities.

According to Aibek Kutmanov, Head of Main Department of the State Border Service of the Kyrgyz Republic, in contemporary conditions usage of automated data collection and analysis systems allows forestalling and detecting potential risks for efficient tackling of crimes at the border. “To date, there are separate databases on different border security threats, which are being created by analysts of the State Border Service of the Kyrgyz Republic with UNODC support.”

“Application of spercialized analytical software is a mandatory requirement for improving work of the Law Enforcement agencies”, highlighted Yusuf Kurbonov, UNODC International Project Coordinator. “We, in our turn, will continue our efforts in assisting to enhance informational and analytical capacities of Central Asian Law Enforcement agencies for improved cross-border cooperation and countering transnational organized crime.”

The training was delivered by analytical staff of the Central Asian Regional Information and Coordination Centre for Combating Illicit Trafficking of Narcotic Drugs, Psychotropic Substances and their Precursors (CARICC).

The event was organized as part of the UNODC ROCA 2015 -2019 Sub-Programme 1 "Countering transnational organized crime, illicit drug trafficking and preventing terrorism" with financial support of the Government of Japan.
