INTERPOL workshop in Riyadh looks to boost regional efforts against human trafficking

INTERPOL on February 2, 2012 released the following:

“RIYADH, Saudi Arabia ‒ International police cooperation as well as best practices on identifying victims of human trafficking and related investigation techniques were the focus of INTERPOL’s Training Workshop Against Trafficking in Human Beings held in Riyadh.

Co-organized with the Naif Arab University for Security Sciences which hosted the event, the five-day workshop (21-25 January) brought together more than 50 participants and 10 experts from 12 Arab countries, including regional representatives from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and the International Organization for Migration.

The workshop reviewed regional crime trends and priorities, as well as the use of INTERPOL tools and services by human trafficking investigators.

The importance of regional cooperation between INTERPOL and Naif University against the trafficking in human beings in enhancing capacity building for the wider law enforcement community was recognized at the event by the President of the University, Professor Abdul Aziz Alghamdi, and the Assistant Director of INTERPOL’s Trafficking in Human Beings Sub-Directorate, Jon Eyers.

A cooperation agreement on the provision of law enforcement training for countries in the region and beyond in specialist areas including trafficking in human beings as well as drugs and organized crime was signed between INTERPOL’s Capacity Building and Training Unit and Naif University in June 2011.

Further regional initiatives including operational workshops in the area of people smuggling and human trafficking will be undertaken this year by INTERPOL’s Trafficking in Human Beings Sub-Directorate.”
