Tackling Drug Smuggling

The international dimension to drug-trafficking requires the targeted use of resources and techniques to deal with this trans-national crime. Traffickers constantly seek new customers, markets and supply routes. Focused action and the continuous development of national and international co-operation is required between law enforcement agencies charged with combating drug-smuggling and related crime. The EU Drugs Strategy (2005-2012), in dealing with illicit drug-trafficking and supply-side enforcement measures, focuses on reducing money laundering, precursor chemical diversion (for the manufacture of illegal drugs) and effective co-operation between Customs, Police and prosecuting authorities, in the fight against drug-trafficking. Revenue continues to play its part in the protection of the national and EU frontiers by combating international drug-trafficking and associated activities and by co-operating with the Criminal Assets Bureau, which includes Revenue officials.
