Interpol Workshop Bahamas
Scientist-in-Residence Dr. George Moore assisted Interpol in a workshop to train prosecutors, police, and security forces from Panama and the Bahamas in the prosecution of crimes involving the illegal trafficking of nuclear and other radioactive materials.

In late February James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) Scientist-in-Residence, Dr. George Moore, traveled to Nassau, Bahamas to assist INTERPOL in a workshop to train prosecutors, police, and security forces from Panama and the Bahamas in the prosecution of crimes involving the illegal trafficking of nuclear and other radioactive materials.

The workshop was part of Project Stone, sponsored by the Government of Canada in efforts to enhance global nuclear security and counterterrorism efforts. Project Stone is carried out by the INTERPOL office of Chemical, Biological, Nuclear, Radiological and explosives (CBRNe) directorate.

Dr. Moore has supported INTERPOL in a number of programs for the past 12 years.
