Police officers’ human rights training skills verified in Bosnia and Herzegovina

A group of 10 law enforcement officers was certified to deliver human rights- based training in Bosnia and Herzegovina on 16-17 April 2024, in Sarajevo. This activity is a part of an internal accreditation scheme developed in close co-operation with the cantonal and entity Ministries of Interior in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Within a 4-month long train-the-trainers cycle which is based on the manuals ‘’Human rights of persons deprived of liberty in police custody’’ and “Manual for training the trainers in the law enforcement agencies” developed earlier with the support of the European Union and the Council of Europe, this group of police professionals also improved presentation and communication skills, required to competently deliver training to their peers.

The core law enforcement training team mentored their colleagues throughout this capacity building initiative by sharing their institutional knowledge and lessons learned from previous training experience and ultimately signed off on the accreditation exercise.

The accredited pool of trainers will further develop training materials and deliver training to their peers throughout the Horizontal Facility programme.

The action “Further strenghthening the treatment of detained and sentenced perosns in line with European standrds in Bosnia and Herzegovina, within which the session was organised, is implemented by the Division for Co-operation in police and deprivation of liberty of the Council of Europe, and is part of the joint European Union and the Council of Europe programme “Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Türkiye”.
