Summary

On 14 March the Mission began a one-week advanced training course, in co-operation with the German Federal Police and the Police Training Centre for local border policemen, on how to detect forged travel documents and certificates. The training course aimed to increase the participants’ operational awareness on the security features of regional passports and Schengen visas as well as to enhance their skills regarding the use of modern forensic equipment. Upon completion of this training course, participants will have the ability to deliver the training modules to their colleagues working in the field of documents security. The training course is part of the Mission’s support to national institutions in the fight against trans-national threats and organized crime with a special focus on irregular migration and trafficking in human beings.
