The Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) is expected to share some key investigative approaches and deterrent methodologies with anti-corruption bodies from across the region at the Commonwealth Caribbean Association of Integrity Commissions and Anti-Corruption Bodies (CCAICACB) Conference, which opened yesterday.

MOCA Director General, Colonel Desmond Edwards, said the entity will highlight, among other things, its vetting and polygraph system, which, he noted, is a significant tool in ensuring that the public sector is comprised of persons of the highest standard of integrity.

"This goes a far way in mitigating against corrupt practices and opportunities for corruption," he said.

The five-day conference is being held at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel, and will include participation from more than 60 entities, inclusive of regional and international delegates. It is intended to facilitate the sharing of best practices across the Commonwealth Caribbean member countries of the CCAICACB.
