Consolidation of efforts in training on identification and profiling in Kyrgyzstan

  • Thematic Component: 1. Institutional Development of Border Control Agencies
  • Country: Kyrgyzstan

From 20 till 24 June, the Border Management Programme in Central Asia (BOMCA) in partnership with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime Programme for Central Asia (UNODC) and Law Enforcement in Central Asia Project (LEICA) held a training of trainers (ToT) on identification and profiling techniques for experts from law enforcement agencies of Kyrgyzstan. The training enhanced the knowledge and skills in the methodology of identification and profiling of foreign terrorist fighters, irregular migrants and drug traffickers.

The expertise during the workshop was delivered by the UNODC, BOMCA and LEICA experts, who shared the European best practices in field of identification and profiling. In the framework of ToT, experts provided basic and advanced training curricula developed on the basis of the European Union’s best practices and a set of materials for further training of staff in the field. Thus, the newly trained national experts are equipped to conduct trainings in their agencies. 

This workshop is a part of series of activities dedicate to preparation of the national training experts and strengthening of identification and profiling mechanisms in the region. Similar activity was implemented for Tajikistan last year.
