Summary

Thirteen central and local level investigators of the Kosovo Police received training in investigation of child sexual abuse, delivered by the Mission from 22 to 26 August at the Kosovo Academy for Public Safety premises. Highlighting the investigative skills and strategies used to profile and identify methods and motivations of perpetrators abusing and sexually exploiting children, the training provided the common terms in the abuse of child victims, language and behavioural analysis of child molesters, victim identification skills, and the internet and trade in child pornography. Particular attention was given to familiarizing police investigators with the best practices, and local and international legislation such as provisions of the Council of Europe Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse and other relevant directives of the European Parliament on combating sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children and child pornography.
