Private Sector Engages ARREST

US, Thai and Australian private sector alliances reached out to the ARREST Program this week and offered assistance to reduce illegal wildlife trafficking.  The Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) of Thailand hosted ARREST at the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA) on May 8th to hear about the program and to explore ways that partners could help with the goals of ARREST.  On the same day, the Australian Chamber of Commerce hosted ARREST at the Conrad Hotel for their 350 member reception.  At both events, private sector business members immediately offered to join the ARREST-sponsored “Fin Free” campaign, while other members are now exploring ways to support technological needs of the program’s enforcement support component.  FREELAND Foundation, the prime on the ARREST Cooperative Agreement with USAID is now working with USAID and the US Mission in Thailand to cement these new partnerships.
