Thailand is a key US partner in the region and plays a critical role in halting the trend of increased transnational crime throughout Southeast Asia. Its criminal justice sector faces significant regional challenges, including international criminal and drug networks, illegal trafficking, and transnational terrorist threats. The Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) has partnered with Strategic Capacity Group (SCG) to provide logistics support for capacity building activities in Thailand to combat these threats and respond to the growing insecurity across the region.
SCG provides seamless Turn-Key Travel and Logistics support and fosters collaborative working relationships with Thailand officials. By working directly with Thai national police services, specialized law enforcement units, and other criminal justice and security sector actors, SCG supports the delivery of seminars, training events, and workshops designed to build critical security sector capacity. Its Turn-Key Logistics system ranges from booking travel for numerous participants, arranging training and event venues, providing per diem payments, responding to last-minute travel requests, and resolving unforeseen travel emergencies. By generating key logistical enablers that allow participants to come together to focus on what matters, SCG supports INL’s vision to contribute to Thailand’s ongoing effort to accountably deliver effective civilian security in accordance with the rule of law.
