Summary

On 7 June a French police trainer, with the support of the Mission, delivered two separate training courses on face recognition for staff based at Tabanovce Border Crossing Point on the host country’s northern border. The objective of the training course was to increase the border police officers’ ability to detect impostors and prevent illegal use of documents. The activity is expected to contribute in increasing the effectiveness of tackling cross-border criminality, in particular irregular migration and trafficking in human beings. A series of training courses will be organized for the staff of the other border crossing points in the host country in the upcoming period.
