The fight against drugs is currently the most pressing on the world stage. In recent years, the number of reported crimes and convictions for crimes related to drug addiction has increased significantly. For a long time everyone was blind to this evil – even those who had to fight it. In the past decade, there has been significant growth in the illicit trafficking of drugs, people, firearms, and natural resources. Trafficking in these and other commodities is generally characterized by high levels of organization and the presence of strong criminal groups and networks. For law enforcement capture of a foot soldier is not a barometer for success until and unless the lynchpins are apprehended and the whole network of organized crime is destroyed.
The scale of illicit drug trafficking is now so vast, and the funds received from such activities are so great that it is a threat to the economy and security of many countries, whose law enforcement bodies seem to have given up without a fight.
Transnational organized crime and drug trafficking is of growing concern, Drug trafficking has particularly severe implications because of the vast illegal profits it generates: an estimated 322 billion dollars a year. There is no doubt that Technology and globalization enable criminals to work across regions; increasing their reach, their crimes and their profits. Just as the Internet has transformed every aspect of our lives, it has also become a cornerstone of criminality. In age of technology it is only logical that the people entrusted with the honor to capture criminals must stay one step ahead in adaptation of cutting-edge technologies. One such technology that all law enforcement agencies must take a note of is
