UNODC Issues Standardised Training Concept to Enhance the Professional Capacity of Criminal Justice Practitioners in Tajikistan to Combat Human Trafficking

During the past 2 years, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has worked in partnership with Tajikistan’s law enforcement bodies and court system to roll out a comprehensive training program for police officers, investigators, prosecutors, and judges to promote effective criminal investigation and prosecution of human trafficking cases.

To implement this training program and ensure ownership of national training institutions for police officers, prosecutors, and judges, UNODC completed a needs assessment and conducted in-depth consultations with key national stakeholders, including the Ministry of Interior and its Academy, the General Prosecutor’s Office and its Training Centre and the Supreme Court and its Training Centre.

This resulted in a standardized training concept describing the overall objectives and expected results of required training and skills development of law enforcement and criminal justice practitioners on trafficking in persons. The training concept outlines thematic issues and skillsets that should be covered, as well as a step-by-step approach to the development of necessary training tools and materials, their piloting and further institutionalisation in the curriculum of national training institutions for the police, prosecutors and judges.

The standardised training concept was prepared within the framework of the project "Strengthening the law enforcement response to trafficking in persons in Tajikistan" with financial support from the US State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).
