Interdicting Small Arms, Ammunition and Parts and Components Course

Under the Firearms Protocol, States are obliged to adopt such measures as may be necessary to enable confiscation of firearms, their parts and components and ammunition that have been illicitly trafficked. In addition, States Parties shall adopt, within their domestic legal systems, such measures as may be necessary to prevent illicitly trafficked firearms, parts and components and ammunition from falling into the hands of unauthorized persons by seizing such firearms, their parts and components and ammunition.

 

In compliance with these provisions, UNLIREC works with law enforcement officials to build their interdiction capacity and provide them with the appropriate tools to mitigate the diversion of these weapons through:

 

  • specialized training on identification of small arms, ammunition, parts and components, x-ray image interpretation and on-site simulations of interdictions using frequently employed methods of concealment
