The mission of the MMIPS is to foster in-depth discussions on how to deter, detect and disrupt transnational organized criminal networks, prosecute those who operate them, and improve citizen security and national stability of key regional partners. MMIPS discussions focus on regional awareness of the air/surface threats, multinational cooperation, and judicial/prosecutorial challenges.
