Drug interdiction equipment donated by the U.S. Embassy helps enforcement officers in Rivera

October 5, 2004

Political/Economic Counselor Oliver Griffith visited the Rivera office of the Direccion General de Represion del Trafico Ilicito de Drogas (DGRTID) last Friday, to exchange views on drug interdiction in Uruguay and to inspect U.S. donated equipment.

He held a roundtable discussion with office director Comisario Manuel Sosa and his staff of six officers, who briefed him on some of the problems they confront in halting the flow of drugs into Uruguay.

The officers have been making excellent use of Embassy donated equipment such as radios and equipment to probe for drugs in luggage and packages.
