An OSCE-supported five-day training seminar on risk profiling techniques to ensure public safety at transportation facilities concluded on 14 September 2018 in Aktobe, Kazakhstan. The event was co-organised by the Programme Office in Astana and the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
Eighteen transport police officers from across Kazakhstan and instructors from the Aktobe Law Institute of the country’s Internal Affairs Ministry took part in the event.
Experts from the Association of Psychologists of Kazakhstan and a national law enforcement expert discussed the history and foundation of risk profiling for individuals, ways to analyse patterns and behaviour of passengers, techniques for interviewing passengers and diffusing potential conflicts involving passengers.
The experts organized a set of practical exercises that provided the participants with the opportunity to apply their newly-acquired skills.
The event is part of the OSCE Programme Office in Astana’s activities to enhance security, increase accountability, and promote best practices related to security in the host country
