Public Security

The concept of public security has come to be understood from a more complex perspective than in decades past. Security threats go beyond the traditional military sphere to include problems that have a direct impact on people’s lives, such as gang violence, cybercrime, trafficking of illegal drugs, firearms, or human beings. The OAS works in many fronts to ensure that the peoples of the Western Hemisphere are protected from the numerous threats of our modern world.
