Facts and stats

  • Suriname is a transit zone for South American cocaine in route to Europe, Africa and, to a lesser extent, the United States.
  • Suriname’s sparsely populated coastal region and isolated jungle interior, together with weak border controls and infrastructure, make narcotics detection and interdiction efforts difficult.
  • Traffickers are able to move drug shipments into and through Suriname by land, water, and air with little resistance.
  • Suriname has two memoranda of understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) that provide for a DEA presence in Suriname and the establishment of the Narcotics Intelligence Unit (NIU), a vetted unit of five to eight officers.
  • In 2012, Suriname signed a MOU with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) to participate in their Container Control Program, a global initiative to improve port interdiction capacities.
  • In 2013, Suriname installed the automated biometrics border control management system that will identify and record people traveling to and from Suriname at the principal airport and border crossings.
  • In 2014, Suriname installed an Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) in four police stations around the country, and also amended the criminal code to allow DNA as evidence in criminal cases.
