Laos Upgrades Border Security

Laos has upgraded security at key border points close to Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam.

New equipment and more reliable internet access have been installed at seven border crossing points, and frontline immigration officers have been connected to Interpolís I-24/7 global police network and databases. The border points are:

Lao-Thai Friendship Bridges 2, 3 and 4
Luang Prabang Airport (North Laos)
Pakse Airport (South Laos)
Dansavanh Checkpoint
Boten Checkpoint

Interpol staff from Lyon and Singapore visited Laos to train frontline offices in the northern and southern regions of the landlocked country to ensure that they know how to use Interpolís wide range of criminal databases to their full potential. Click to enlarge.

The project forms part of Interpolís Twinning programme which facilitates the development of collaborative and mutually beneficial exchanges between two Interpol National Central Bureaus (NCB) or countries.

Funded by Japanís Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the project builds on the EU-ASEAN Migration and Border Management Programme II under which three border points were connected to the Interpol network as part of capacity building efforts in ASEAN transit hubs.
