Need for improved surveillance capabilities for both land and sea smuggling routes
Improved surveillance means are required for the detection of suspicious transported containers by both land and sea routes. LEAs need real – time geo-location information about suspected freights (online tracking). OCGs use several and different routes for smuggling drugs \ illicit items \ counterfeit products and LEAs should be capable of monitoring them. In additions OCG are using countermeasures like jammers to diminish current LEA capabilities. More important additional trained resources are required for surveillance tasks.
