The course focused on “Strategies For Managing Child Sex Offenders”, targeting law enforcement officers – such as police investigators and prosecutors – as well as policy-makers and experts from more than a dozen of EU countries.
The 22nd CEPOL (the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Training) course took place between the 13th and the 15th December 2017 in Budapest, Hungary, at the agency’s headquarters.
Pedro das Neves who took part in this course as guest expert in representation of IPS_Innovative Prison Systems, provided an overview on European programmes for dealing with sex offenders in correctional contexts.
The aim of this training event is to assist the EU Member States in sharing knowledge on the application and coordination regarding the transposition of the Directive 2011/93/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 December 2011.
The directive is on combatting sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children, and child pornography, and replaces the Council Framework-Decision 2004/68/JHA.
