What we do

The Department against Transnational Organized Crime (DTOC) was created in 2016 and its main purpose is to provide technical and legislative assistance to OAS Member States to confront and respond to Transnational Organized Crime (DOT) in its different manifestations. In particular, the DTOC supports those Member States that require it to comply with the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and its three Protocols (trafficking in persons; smuggling of migrants; and illicit trafficking in firearms), as well as the Hemispheric Plan of Action against TOC, and the Chapultepec Consensus.

Likewise, it provides Technical Secretariat services to the different political and specialized forums with competence in the matter within the OAS; and promotes cooperation projects among member states to strengthen the regional fight against TOC based on different lines of action.
