From 18th to 22nd May 2015, the 3rd Module of the FIEP-TAIEX-GIMAT Project (Gendarmerie Immigration Mobile Assistance Teams) “Urban crime, diffused criminality and control of areas at risk” was implemented in favour of 30 Officers from the Moldovan Department of the Carabinieri Troops.
This event, officially opened by the Deputy Minister/Commander of the Carabinieri Troops – Col. Veaceslav CEBAN, took place upon an application to the European Commission within the framework and funding of the TAIEX instrument.
The seminar was implemented by 9 experts coming from the EU Members of the FIEP Association (2 French National Gendarmerie, 3 Italian Carabinieri, 1 Spanish Guardia Civil, 1 Portuguese Guarda Nacional Republicana, 2 Romanian Gendarmerie) and chaired by Lt.Col. Antonio SERVEDIO, representative of the FIEP Member, the Italian Carabinieri, who promoted the elaboration of the FIEP-TAIEX-GIMAT project within the FIEP Association in 2006.
The panellists lectured on some significant aspects related to the mentioned module and on some cross cutting issues, internationally recognised as milestone in the policing context: “International Police Protection of Human Rights”, “Fight against robberies, thefts, pick-pocketing, burglaries and crimes against property”, “Proximity and Community Policing”, “Hate Crimes”, “Fight against Organised Crime”, “Documents Fraud”, “Protection of Labour”, “Crimes committed by non residential and other moving communities”, “Police activity in assistance/detention centres”, “Public order at the borders or in occasion of riots/demonstrations of ethnic communities”, “International Police Cooperation”.
The 30 Moldovan Carabinieri, coming from their headquarters and from all the territorial units, enjoyed a 5-day workshop which took place in a hotel located in the Moldovan capital, Chisinau.
The goal to be achieved was to gather capacities and best practices from different EU police forces, taking into account the need to enhance operational capabilities as well as the understanding of the respect and the protection of human rights, with special reference to the most vulnerable categories, in line with the EU legislation and policies.
The audience debated and interacted with the chairman and the lecturers, thus sharing experiences, best practices and initiatives related to the panels presented.
