The awareness-raising and sensitizing training was organized for the personnel of the National Police Headquarters, the Office of the Prosecutor General and the National Judicial Office. 

The agenda and the training material was based on the expertise of OKRI associates in the field of crime criminology and sociology and on the preliminary results of the forthcoming study "Characteristics of trafficking cases; Criminal, Criminological and Sociological Evaluation of Exploitation". In addition to OKRI, presentations were delivered by representatives of the National Bureau of Investigation, the Prosecutor's Office of Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg County, the Office of the Prosecutor General, the Criminal Department of the Curia and the Hungarian Baptist Aid.

The training was particularly useful because of the case studies prepared by OKRI. Participants highlighted the intense legal and professional knowledge gained during the training and the direct link established between the judicial and law enforcement bodies. 

Given that discussing legal cases is a very useful way of deepening knowledge, the Ministry of Interior aims to provide joint, practice-oriented training for law enforcement and judicial authorities in every counties in the future.
