The OSCE-recommended model of intelligence-led policing (ILP) and its advantages for contemporary policing was presented to the Uzbek Police in a training workshop in Tashkent. It was organised by the OSCE Secretariat, in co-operation with the OSCE Office of the Project Co-ordinator in Uzbekistan.
The training workshop was attended by 25 police managers in decision- and policymaking positions in the Uzbek Police, operational structures and educational institution.
The OSCE Strategic Police Matters Unit experts introduced the concept of ILP, as presented in the recently published OSCE Guidebook on Intelligence-Led Policing, and explained how this law enforcement model can complement and improve traditional policing approaches. Law enforcement experts from Estonia and Sweden gave presentations and shared information on ILP practices in their countries. Following the presentations, participants discussed the potential for implementing the ILP model in Uzbekistan.
ILP is a modern law enforcement model which facilitates proactive and efficient law enforcement management through combining intelligence gathering and analysis with informed decision-making procedures. The OSCE Guidebook on ILP has been translated into several languages and is used by law enforcement authorities and training institutions across the OSCE area.
