2020-06-23 › First online workshop on intelligence-led policing held in Turkmenistan
A first ever online training workshop on intelligence-led policing (ILP), a modern proactive model for policing and law enforcement management, was held on 23 June 2020, for some 20 senior representatives of Turkmen law enforcement agencies.
The Strategic Police Matters Unit of the OSCE’s Transnational Threats Department (SPMU) organized the workshop in close co-operation with the OSCE Centre in Ashgabat.
ILP uses information and data for evidence-based decision-making and planning, leading to more effective and efficient police work. Central to ILP is criminal intelligence – analyzed data and information – that is collected and managed in compliance with national and international law, as well as data protection and human rights standards.
“The OSCE Centre in Ashgabat developed constructive co-operation with the host Government in the area of police personnel capacity building,” said Natalya Drozd, Head of the OSCE Centre in Ashgabat.
“It is our belief that today’s event will offer an excellent platform for the exchange of practical experiences and will have an added value for the participants’ everyday work,” added Drozd.
Guy Vinet, Head of SPMU, said: “ILP ensures that the work of law enforcement reflects reality on the ground, thus making policing more effective, efficient, transparent, and accountable”.
Participants were familiarized with the
OSCE Guidebook on ILP
and shared experiences, good practices, and lessons learned from the implementation of ILP at the national level in Serbia and the community level in Sweden. Participants also discussed potential benefits and challenges of introducing ILP in their own country.
The event follows similar workshops organized in recent months by SPMU under its extra-budgetary project on ILP in other OSCE participating States in Central Asia, including
