22nd African Regional Conference
10 September 2013 - 12 September 2013 - Oran, Algeria
Established in 1962, the African Regional Conference takes place every two years in order to assess the state of police cooperation and the fight against transnational crime. It brings together Heads of Police and police cooperation bodies in the region to discuss specific crime-related problems.
The conference makes it possible to draw up new policy guidelines for police activities in the region in the light of the priorities expressed by the Heads of Police. Unlike the Organization's General Assembly, regional conferences do not have standing technical committees. The recommendations made by the Regional Conference are applied nationally in accordance with each country's national regulations and procedures.
