Arnaldo Carlos said this Tuesday, at a press conference, on the sidelines of the 26th African Regional Conference of the international police organization, that he intends to address the factors that trigger crime in Angola so that solutions can be found to mitigate the problem.
The official said that one of Angola's objectives is to seek the experiences of other countries in combating cybercrime, identified as one of the types of crimes on the rise worldwide, with another concern being border crime.
Arnaldo Carlos highlighted that the Angolan police have been exchanging experiences with other countries on the best ways to guarantee border security, respecting the sovereignty of neighboring states and Angola, as well as the freedom of citizens.
The national police also intends to debate the perspectives of other countries in the fight against drugs, a topic “that is worrying all the police in the world and Angola is not left out”, as the country began as a transit point for drugs, but very strong points of consumption are also being identified, he added.
The official also stated that the relevance of Interpol depends on each country, as Interpol has the tools, but States must be prepared to use the resources that the organization makes available to share information.
Interpol Secretary General Jürgen Stock also said at the press conference that organized crime, being increasingly complex and international, is increasing in all forms, which puts more pressure on human and financial resources. .
Stock recalled that Interpol provides a platform that helps its members coordinate their efforts and that new technologies must be available to police forces to deal with large amounts of data and information, such as artificial intelligence.
