Special security precautions are in place to ensure all goes smoothly at a conference to be attended by the world’s leading law enforcement officers engage in the fight against international narcotics trade. A security drill involving more than 3,000 police officers, military and community volunteers (pacalang) was held at the Niti Mandala field in downtown Denpasar of Friday, June 8, 2012, presided over by the head of the National Narcotics Agency, Gories Mere.

Gories, who also serves as current chairman of the IDEC, told the gathering charged with keeping the conference safe and secure that the Bali conference will discuss strategies for the elimination of the international narcotics trade.

During its 28-year history the past IDEC conferences have always been held in the U.S. and Europe. The Bali conference will be the first time the event has been staged in Asia.

Gories declared Bali’s selection as the host destination for the IDEC conference as an “honor for Indonesia.”

Separately, Gories shared the information from the United Nations Office on Drug and Crimes (UNODC) that records a three-fold increase in trafficking in amphetamines (ATS), while marijuana and heroin flows have doubled.

The IDEC Conference will also include an exhibition of the latest technology available to law enforcement in the battle against illicit narcotics distribution.

The conference will be attended by almost 400 law enforcement officials representing around 80 countries.
