Head of HSI to Lead World Customs Enforcement Committee

The head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) has been selected to chair the World Customs Organization’s (WCO) enforcement committee, ICE announced this week.

HSI Executive Associate Director James Dinkins will now lead WCO’s enforcement committee, which works to promote strategic direction on compliance, control and intelligence in cases of commercial fraud, illicit drug trafficking, money laundering, electronic crime, smuggling, environmental crime, transnational organized crime and firearms, WCO said.

“Representing HSI and working with the World Customs Organization in this capacity is a great opportunity to exchange ideas and create new possibilities for operations related to customs enforcement around the world,” Dinkins said. “Every day that HSI can build and foster successful relationships with foreign agencies and governments is another day that criminals have fewer chances to profit at the expense of law abiding citizens worldwide.”

WCO also works to improve technology and communications in customs matters. According to ICE, it is the voice of the global customs community and represents 176 members worldwide.

In his new role, ICE said Dinkins hopes to mitigate and understand emerging threats, analyze risks and respond to security concerns, ideas first articulated by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano when she addressed WCO last June.
