CGCC collaborated with the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate to organize a regional workshop for police officers, prosecutors, and counterterrorism focal points from South Asia at the Jakarta Centre for Law Enforcement Cooperation (JCLEC). A first regional workshop held in Bangladesh in 2009 and a second workshop held in Sri Lanka in 2010 brought together law enforcement officials to share experiences, lessons learned, and best practices in handling cases relating to terrorism and other serious transnational crime. This third workshop in the series was held outside the South Asia region, designed to better acquaint participants with JCLEC. JCLEC provides a useful model for law enforcement cooperation in a region that faces several shared security challenges. The sessions in Indonesia focused on topics such as countering the financing of terrorism, community policing, new payment technologies, and investigations using cell phone records and communications.
