ABSTRACT

Wildlife Trafficking: International Law Enforcement Responses [July 27, 2020]   [open pdf - 456KB]

From the Document: "Congress has sought to implement law enforcement approaches to wildlife trafficking by appropriating funds for and conducting oversight of relevant foreign aid programs and for U.S. and foreign law enforcement capabilities. U.S. policy tools to target wildlife traffickers include measures to increase dedicated law enforcement personnel, provide equipment and trainings to foreign countries, designate traffickers as ineligible for U.S. entry, freeze traffickers' assets, and offer financial rewards for information leading to their arrest. Debates exist regarding the efficacy of law enforcement approaches, the appropriate number of law enforcement officials, and the extent to which individuals at different levels of trafficking operations are targeted by law enforcement."
