“Policing Hate Crime against LGBTI persons: Training for a Professional Police Response”

In cooperation with the Cypriot Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers, the SOGI Unit is organizing a roundtable of government representatives in Nicosia on February 1st, 2017, on the occasion of the launching of the new manual on “Policing Hate Crime against LGBTI persons: Training for a Professional Police Response”. This manual is designed for police trainers, investigators, managers, hate crime officers and frontline police officers working in countries across the Council of Europe. It builds on Council of Europe standards and its purpose is to provide assistance, information and appropriate tools for conducting trainings on hate crime against LGBTI persons, to help improve law enforcement officials’ substantive knowledge on hate crime against LGBTI people and strengthen their capacity and practical skills to investigate such hate crimes. The event will bring together representatives of 10  member states that have committed to train law enforcement on hate crime against LGBTI people, and discuss the piloting of the new training manual in the framework of the SOGI Unit’s cooperation and assistance activities.
