Publicated on: September 22, 2022

The Ministry of Interior, in cooperation with the National Institute of Criminology (OKRI), the Hungarian National Police Headquarters (ORFK) and the Prosecutor General's Office, held an attitude-shaping training on human trafficking for police officers and prosecutors of four counties in Northeastern Hungary (Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, Hajdú-Bihar county, Heves county, Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg county) on 19-20 September.

The training course "Attitude-shaping Training on Human Trafficking" for the staff of the National Police Headquarters, the Prosecutor General's Office was aimed at sensitising and providing up-to-date knowledge for the work. 

In addition to the speakers from OKRI, ORFK and the Prosecutor General's Office, representatives of the US Embassy in Budapest, the head of the Chance for Families 2005 Foundation, which also runs shelters for victims of trafficking, and experts from the Trauma Centre and the Family Friendly Hungary Centre gave presentations. In the practical sessions of the training, the participating police officers and prosecutors had the opportunity to work on two real cases of human trafficking and to practice communication with a victim of labour and sexual exploitation in a simulation session with the involvement of experts. 

Since its launch in 2019, a total of 169 people have participated in the attitude-shaping training series. Given that experience so far has shown that sharing authentic and insightful case studies and exercises is a very useful way to deeply integrate knowledge, the Ministry of Interior aims to organise such trainings in the future.
