EU Police and Rule of Law Mission’s training supports safer prison environment in Palestine through improved risk management
December 16, 2019
A training for 17 management level officials from Palestine’s penitentiary system was organised by EUPOL COPPS on 3–5 December 2019 with the aim of supporting safer prison environments through improved internal inspections and management of risks.
The training followed up on a similar seminar delivered in April this year. The most recent training provided more advanced content on risk management and made a closer link between the risk management framework and regular inspections of correctional facilities.
With the support of EUPOL COPPS, Palestine’s Correction and Rehabilitation Centres Department is planning to modify the template they use for inspecting their facilities to integrate some of the international best practices discussed during the training.
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.
