Technical Assistance to strengthen the capacities of the Police in Macedonia
Our project for strengthening the capacities of the Police in Macedonia, has presented the newly developed "Guide for Police Officers to Enhance Interviewing and Evidence Collection Skills in Cases of Domestic Violence". The event took place in the southern town of Bitola on 1 September and gathered nearly 100 police officers from all around the country, together with representatives of the Center for Social Work, the Public Prosecutor, judiciary, civil society, media and other stakeholders. The Guide was designed to meet the real needs and challenges the police officers face in practice when responding to cases of domestic violence, and it puts particular focus on the police officers’ communication skills when interviewing victims, offenders, children and witnesses.
