A firm hold on drug trafficking One of the most important mandates for the Judicial Police is the fight against drug crime in all its forms. Positioned on the commercial and trafficking routes of three continents, the archipelago of over 4, square kilometers isolated in the Atlantic Ocean shares waters with several neighboring West African countries, making it an attractive transit point for cocaine bound for Europe and Asia from the Americas. Cape Verde police authorities take this concern very seriously and put maximum energy into crime prevention and investigation. The NCB is also responsible for international law enforcement protocol projects, analysis, and police foreign relations. It is the point of contact for national investigations requiring international outreach. When Cape Verde nationals are arrested abroad, enquiries regarding their identity and criminal history are addressed to the NCB, and the same procedure applies for foreign nationals arrested in Cape Verde.
