December 2004 — March 2006

Objectives and results
The objective of the project was to enhance the capabilities of law enforcement services to detect, investigate and counteract trafficking and to support victims. For this purpose training modules were developed for police officers, border guards and customs officials of all ranks. Based on European and UN standards and guidelines, the modules were tested in 10 Member States and candidate countries. The curricula were disseminated at the EU level via CEPOL and ACT (Ad Hoc Centre for Training of Border Guards) and could be adapted to each national context.
Consideration was also given to stepping up cooperation with NGOs by involving them closely in the victim support activities. Two meetings were organised to exchange information and best practice — in June 2005 in Budapest and in Traiskirchen, Austria, in February 2006.
