‘Tackling Trafficking in Human Beings: Prevention, Protection and Prosecution’
An Garda Siochana (Irish Police Force) has, in conjunction with the IOM, developed and delivered a partnership based multi-disciplinary training course for frontline police officers in relation to preventing and combating human trafficking. This training comprises modules on issues such as identification, victim protection, investigative techniques, legislation, international co-operation, crime prevention etc. Significant focus on the training course is given to the role other state agencies and non-governmental organisations can play in the fight against trafficking. Relevant state and non-governmental organisations with expertise in areas such as trafficking for sexual exploitation, labour exploitation and legal advice for trafficking victims deliver course modules on their areas of expertise. Their input outlines the role they can play in supporting police work on trafficking. There are panel discussions with these organisations to allow for course attendees to further explore both the role these organisations can play and their perspectives on trafficking issues.
The project is continuous.
