TOPCOP: law enforcement officers in Moldova gain insights into recruitment methods in human trafficking

December 14, 2021

The EU-funded TOPCOP project (Training and Operational Partnership against Organised Crime), coordinated by the EU Agency for Law Enforcement Training (CEPOL), held a national training on the Trafficking in Human Beings from 6-10 December in Chisinau, Moldova. The aim of the course was to study the methods of online recruitment of victims.

During the training, a total of 30 representatives from law enforcement institutions gained deeper insights into the techniques used by traffickers. The legal, administrative and technical means of combatting the recruitment of victims was also a key topic of the CEPOL training.

“We will definitely share these good practices with our peers from respective units, and will apply them in the future,” said Alexandru Besleaga, Senior Investigation Officer from the Centre for combatting trafficking in Human Beings, Republic of Moldova.
