KAMPALA – A total of 24 officers from various agencies have undergone intensive training on reviewing the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for Investigating and Prosecuting Trafficking in Persons.
The training took place at Kabila Country Club, Kampala, with a primary focus on thoroughly examining the dissemination plan and defining precise timing and modalities for successful implementation and monitoring.
During the training, the participants engaged in simulations using the SOPs, incorporating insights from CIVIPOL national anti-trafficking experts and utilizing the National Referral Guidelines.
This collaborative effort demonstrates a strong commitment among multiple agencies and organizations to effectively combat trafficking in persons. The Multi-Agency Task Force aims to strengthen collective capacity and capability to respond to and prosecute trafficking offenses in Uganda.
