August 26, 2008 (ADDIS ABABA) - The 10th East Africa police chiefs cooperation organization (EAPCCO), annual meeting kicks off in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.

The meeting is discussing on ways of joint police cooperation to prevent from possible cross border crimes, terror acts, arms smuggling, drug and child trafficking and organized crimes along borders.

During the opening ceremony Ethiopian federal police director general,Workuneh Gebeyehu, said at a time the globe is being shrunk into a small village it is being very easy for criminals and terrorists to act.

“We are all threatened by the deadly peril to which we must devote all our energy today” Workuneh said adding “success against criminality largely depends on the global response and mutual co-operation between nations”

The east African police chief’s cooperation organization was established 9 years ago in the Ugandan capital, Kampala.

Current EAPCCO chairman and Burundi’s police commissioner, Sekaganda Bernard to his side said to curb criminality, member states must closely work together and must enhance information exchange among them

EAPCCO comprises member states of Ethiopia, Sudan, Kenya, Tanzania, Somalia, Eritrea, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Djbouti, and the Seychelles.
