[...] There also exist several concrete examples of how the sharing of information and intelligence is leading to action within the policing community, and the level of success in this area is consistent with the current stage of the ICCUF. [...] Occurrence of Horizontal Planning At the horizontal level, the JMT has been created as the on-going planning forum to oversee the participation of all partner organizations, coordinate activities and ensure that the goals of the ICCUF are attained.
