The OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe donated thermal cameras (CCTV cameras) to the Tajik Border Troops on 4 August 2020 in Dushanbe. The donated equipment will increase the technical capacity of the Tajik Border Troops to better detect and seize illicit items at the Tajik-Afghan green border and prevent illegal cross-border movements.
The provided assistance is also expected to assist Tajik authorities in tackling the challenges of migration and transnational organized crime in particular. To ensure the sustainable use of the equipment, the Office plans to train Tajik border officers on the use of the surveillance system.
In addition, the OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe handed over 25 travel kits to the Special Unit of the Tajik Border Troops, which will help them in conducting effective field operation activities.
