Secretary Napolitano also underscored the key roles of our partners in improving security cooperation and information sharing to better protect our global trade and travel systems.
The Department has continued to expand collaboration with our European partners through initiatives such as Operation Pacific Rim, a transnational criminal investigation, with Spain and other international partners, that, since 2009, has identified and dismantled the largest drug trafficking and bulk cash smuggling organization in U.S. law enforcement history.
