Polish-U.S. Law Enforcement Transnational Crime Cooperation

Polish Central Bureau of Investigation (CBSP) police officers cooperated with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Pakistani Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) in order to prevent the 61.2 million PLN worth of substances from being distributed. Over 3 tons of hashish and 517 kilograms of APAA/BMK (amphetamine precursor) were seized as the result of an investigation conducted by Polish Central Bureau of Investigation under the supervision of the National Prosecutor’s office.

Polish Chief of Police noted that the operation reflects the “hard work of Polish Police and cooperation with Pakistani and American police.”

U.S. Embassy DEA Attaché Jason Schumacher: “This record-breaking seizure was the result of good actionable intelligence and the closest collaboration amongst Poland, Pakistan, and the United States. This operation is a prime example of interagency teamwork among international law enforcement partners. It is critical that, together, we relentlessly pursue these dangerous transnational criminal networks that have no respect for borders, and no regard for either the rule of law or who they harm as a result of their criminal endeavors.”
