iPROCEEDS-2: Workshop for Turkish law enforcement professionals on Council of Europe-developed “Guide for first responders to cybercrime investigations”

In 2021, the Council of Europe (CoE) through its Cybercrime Programme Office (C-PROC) developed the “Guide for first responders to cybercrime investigations” (available upon request on the Octopus Platform) based on the international standards and best practices used by the first responders to cybercrime investigations. The Guide presents the first steps to be taken when receiving complaints by victims of cybercrimes in a professional and competent manner, and primary investigative steps. If first responders are not able to investigate and collect data on time, relevant data may no longer be available or becomes corrupted, thus compromising the entire investigation.

The iPROCEEDS-2 project, a joint action of the European Union and the Council of Europe supported the Turkish authorities by translating the Guide into Turkish and delivery of a targeted workshop.

The workshop was held on 24-25 of January 2022 and aimed at further strengthening of law enforcement professionals’ skills and competence as first responders when dealing with cybercrime investigations. Over 150 first responders (police constables, inspectors, cybercrime investigators, police chiefs, etc.) from all over Turkey actively participated in the workshop.

Through detailed presentations of the guide, scenarios, live questions/polls and practical advice, the audience had the opportunity to understand the international standards and best practices as well as the need for similar domestic tool.

The iPROCEEDS-2 project will continue to provide support to first responders in the South-East Europe and Turkey by organising future similar capacity building activities.
