Organised crime, in particular trafficking and smuggling of persons, continues to flourish in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the wider region of the Western Balkans. In view of the enhanced partnership and future integration of this region into the EU, law enforcement officers and members of the judiciary received training on how to fight these crimes based on the EU standards and best practices. 40 officers from the border police, specialised anti-trafficking units, and basic rank frontline police officers from Bosnia and Herzegovina participated in a five-day workshop organised jointly by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the Vraca Police Academy from May 8 to 12, 2006. The training is undertaken in the framework of the Community Assistance for Reconstruction, Development and Stabilisation (CARDS) Regional Police Project funded by the European Commission and the Council of Europe and managed by IOM.
