Environment Crime

ICERMS worked in partnership with the OSCE in Albania to establish an Environmental Crime Taskforce consisting of representatives from Law Enforcement Agencies; Judiciary Investigation; Revenue & Customs Agencies; Environment Agencies; Forestry Police and Coastal & Maritime Services representatives.

ICERMS developed and delivered a bespoke vocational training qualification for the Taskforce members and this led to a programme of training which was a blend of theory and practical exercises.

In addition the taskforce members were able to undertake this training whilst investigating environmental criminality and working on subsequent prosecutions.

The programme lasted 2 years and was well received by the recipients who successfully undertook a customized qualification unit in environmental crime.
