Building a Europe for and with children

Violence against women and children - vision, innovation and professionalism in policing, known as the VIP Guide, has been designed to promote awareness amongst police officers of the different forms of violence against women and children, including trafficking.

It forms part of human rights training and awareness materials developed by the Council of Europe Police and Human Rights Programme (1997-2000).

This programme was followed by the new programme Police and Human Rights - Beyond 2000. It will continue to work towards enabling all police officers in the Council of Europe member sates to gain a sound knowledge of human rights standards which have important implications for policing and to acquire the skills to apply them in their daily practice.
