This week EUPOL COPPS concluded a four day ‘Training of Trainers’ course to enhance the capacity of Palestinian Prison Officers to apply risk and needs assessment of prisoners and to conduct structured sentence planning. This will enable prisoners to be better prepared for release and hopefully reduce the risk of reoffending.

Rehabilitation and reintegration are cornerstones in good prison management and form parts of internationally accepted minimum standards.

EUPOL COPPS is the European Union Co-ordinating Office for Palestinian Police Support. The aim of the Mission is to contribute to the establishment of sustainable and effective policing arrangements and to advise Palestinian counterparts on criminal justice and rule of law related aspects under Palestinian ownership.
