Learn More About the Transnational Organized Crime Rewards Program Targets
Since 2013, the Transnational Organized Crime Rewards Program (TOCRP) has supported law enforcement efforts to disrupt and dismantle illicit trafficking and other transnational criminal networks to protect American lives and U.S. national security. The program gives the Secretary of State statutory authority to offer rewards of up to $25 million for information leading to the reduction of transnational crime, disruption of the financial mechanisms that enable them, and the arrest and/or conviction of members and leaders. The program covers transnational crimes beyond drug trafficking that cause direct and significant harm to lives and communities through criminal acts such as cybercrime, human trafficking, money laundering wildlife trafficking, and trafficking in arms and other illicit goods.
INL manages the program in close coordination with the Department of Justice and U.S. federal law enforcement agencies.
Individuals outside the United States wishing to provide information on transnational organized criminals designated under the TOCRP should submit information according to the rewards poster issued for each designated target or may contact the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. In the United States, individuals may also contact the relevant law enforcement agency, such as the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), or other interested U.S. agencies.
Reward offers may be made public on the State Department website. Government officers and employees are not eligible for rewards. If the Secretary determines that the identity of the recipient of a reward payment must be protected, appropriate measures will be taken to do so.
