  • Thematic Component: 2. Improvement of Detection Capacities
  • Country: Kazakhstan

From April 19-21, the Border Management Programme in Central Asia held a workshop in Nur-Sultan for Crime Intelligence Officers involved in the fight against cross-border crime. A similar workshop was conducted by the BOMCA Programme in Tajikistan earlier in January of the current year.

The workshop aimed at deepening the knowledge of criminal intelligence officers and enhancing awareness of criminal intelligence investigation methods, specifically for the staff of the National Security Committee, Border Service and the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Experts from the Criminal Investigation Board of the State Border Guard Service of the Republic of Lithuania and the Lithuanian Criminal Police Bureau trained participants on the principles of intelligence-led policing and law enforcement, reactive and proactive law enforcement, as well as tactical, operational and strategic intelligence and shared the European Union approach for setting, implementing and evaluating priorities in the fight against cross-border organised crime. The major result of the workshop was that participants enhanced their capacities in data collection and data management.
