  The European Union funded project to strengthen the capacity of Turkish Forensic Laboratories in     combating illicit drug trafficking will be launched on 27 November in Ankara. It will help establish and     strengthen the drug profiling centres in the Forensic Laboratories of both the Turkish National Police and     the Gendarmerie. With an overall EU contribution of EUR 3 Million, the project will support the     establishment of a profiling centre at the Ankara Police Forensic Laboratory and will further strengthen the   capacity of the existing profiling centre of the Gendarmerie's Forensic Laboratory. The project is of great     importance for the fight against drug trafficking, in particular considering that Turkey remains a key transit   country. It will help Turkey to improve its analytical capacities to detect origin and chemical profiles of     seized drugs and to enhance its intelligence on this phenomenon. The project will also deepen the     cooperation with the EU in this area, through improved data sharing, peer-learning, and trainings. This     twinning project will be implemented in partnership with the United Kingdom...(link)
