23 specialists from all 17 prisons and the representatives of the National Administration of Penitentiaries (NAP) were trained on transposing the set of principles and sequence of steps necessary to enable the implementation of a dynamic security approach to prison management, for ensuring a safer detention and working environment in prisons. 
During the training session, the participants were guided through the concept, approaches and precepts of dynamic security and learned how to identify potential security risks and vulnerabilities of prisoners for the rapid repression of potential incidents and disturbances. They engaged in group activities outlining the principles and norms of professional conduct, while practicing their skills for effective communication and interaction with prisoners - the key elements for the successful implementation of the dynamic security. 
The training was structured on the results of the Working Group constituted jointly with the NAP, whereas a Policy on dynamic security and three pertinent Standard Operational Procedures on adapting to detention, on professional conduct and on communication were developed under the guidance of Council of Europe consultants, as response to the emergent issues for the prison system of the Republic of Moldova. 
The activity was organised on 13-14 February 2023 under the auspices of the Project “Strengthening the prison and probation reforms, provision of health care and the treatment of patients in closed institutions in the Republic of Moldova”, financed through the Council of Europe Action Plan for the Republic of Moldova (2021-2024) and implemented by the Council of Europe.
